Responsible conduct of research: training information

Phase 1: CITI online training for undergraduate, graduate and postdoctoral researchers


All undergraduate students, graduate students, and postdoctoral researchers who are supported on a sponsored project must complete the online RCR training in CITI within 60 days of employment. When a student's status at ASU changes (i.e., undergraduate to graduate, graduate to post doc), the student must meet the requirements for the new status.

Auto-generated emails and reminders in the MyASU “To Do” task section will be removed within 48 business hours after completion.

* Step-by-step instructions to take the CITI training are located at the bottom of the page.
