Undergraduate Research

A limited number of qualified undergraduate students may undertake supervised research if they show both interest in and aptitude for independent and creative work. Applications may be made for research in any of the disciplines in which faculty are willing to involve students. When such research is conducted, students must submit written reports for approval by the faculty of the department in which the work was conducted. The supervising faculty member and the department chair must approve grades for such work.

In order to enroll for undergraduate research, the student must make arrangements in writing prior to registration. Applications are available from the deans of the Colleges of Arts and Sciences, Business, and Engineering. Applications must have the signatures of the student, the faculty supervisor, and the department chair. If the dean of the College approves the application, the student will be given a form authorizing registration for the work.
