A: Yes. We have one section of each of the LMC 4701 and LMC 4702 are designated as remote for the Summer. If you have any questions, please contact your instructor.
Q: Will undergraduate students be able to participate in research this Summer?
A: Yes, but there are specific protocols that must be followed. Information regarding the Research Operation Status for COVID-19 can be found at http://health.gatech.edu/coronavirus/researchers. Before a faculty member or lab director agrees to host an undergraduate researcher, they will need to assess whether the student’s research requires resources that are only available on campus. If so, they must consider the experience level of the student researcher and develop a detailed plan for the spring semester that accounts for anticipated low researcher density in campus laboratories and guidelines for the use of PPE, social distancing, testing, and contact tracing. Undergraduate researchers must receive Covid-19-specific safety and hygiene training before beginning work.
Q: How can I conduct research for academic credit or for pay?
A: Undergraduate research experiences whether for pay or for academic credit are determined by the faculty and the schools who are overseeing the research.
