In accordance with the Georgia Tech Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) Compliance Policy, doctoral students funded through a covered NSF or NIH project are required to complete two forms of RCR training. USDA NIFA funded doctoral students are only required to complete the online training (they are encouraged but not required to complete the in-person training). The training must be completed before an applicable person graduates or otherwise leaves the Institute even if that imposes a shorter deadline than what is mentioned below.
An online CITI RCR course must be successfully completed within ninety  days of first being appointed to a covered project, or before an applicable person graduates or otherwise leaves the Institute even if that imposes a shorter deadline.
Doctoral students paid in whole or in part from covered projects funded by NSF or NIH must adhere to the in-person training requirement delineated within the GT RCR Academic Policy for Doctoral Students. However, the in-person training must be completed within the first year of appointment to the project.
