  • Academic Integrity Training



    Contact College of Graduate Studies (407-823-2766 or if you have questions about academic integrity training.

    Starting Fall 2011, all students newly admitted to doctoral programs must complete training designed to inculcate an awareness and understanding of the fundamental issues of academic integrity and the responsible conduct of research (RCR) in a manner that is consistent with federal regulations.

    A doctoral student who has not completed the required training in academic integrity and the responsible conduct of research by their appropriate deadlines will not be advanced to candidacy.

    Note: Doctoral students who are readmitted with a new catalog year are required to meet the academic integrity requirements. Doctoral students who are moved forward in catalog year administratively are not required to meet the academic integrity requirements.

    Required Training

    The academic integrity required training includes: 

    1. The online Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) Responsible Conduct of Research training in the appropriate disciplinary area; and
    2. Four face-to-face ethics/RCR workshops coordinated by the College of Graduate Studies and the Office of Research and Commercialization, or an approved alternative training offered as a program requirement for all students in the program (see list of approved programs). Students in a program that has approved alternative ethics/RCR training must still complete the online CITI Responsible Conduct of Research training in the appropriate disciplinary area. 

    Both the CITI training and workshops are provided at no cost and are open to all UCF graduate students and postdoctoral fellows and associates. For the ethics/RCR workshops, priority is given to doctoral students who are required to complete these workshops prior to advancement to candidacy.
