Class Credit for Attending Online Fall Undergraduate Research Showcase

We'd like to assist instructors who offer class credit for attending the Fall Undergraduate Research Showcase by providing documentation of student attendance to instructors. The Center for Undergraduate Research wants to encourage students to attend the Online Fall Undergraduate Research Showcase and hear about the great research that their peers are conducting. 

How it works:

Students are invited to attend the Online Fall Undergraduate Research Showcase in order to get extra credit if their instructor has made arrangements with the Center to offer extra credit. Students will login to complete a set of online presentation feedback forms. The Center will email the instructor the names of students who submitted feedback forms.

Instructors: If you are planning on offering this extra credit to your students, please send us a quick email by 11:59p.m. November 15, 2020 to let us know the name and course number of the class and the number of students enrolled so we can add your class information to the online feedback form.

Students: If you will be attending the Online Fall Undergraduate Research Showcase for extra credit, you do not need to register to attend. Before you begin your viewing of the online event, review the schedule of presenters and decide which four presentations you would like to focus on for your extra credit. THE DEADLINE FOR EXTRA CREDIT SUBMISSIONS IS 8:00a.m., MONDAY, DECEMBER 7, 2020.

Please email the Center at if you have questions!
