The Research Requirement: Earn Nine (9) Research Credits A) PURPOSE: The purpose of the research requirement is to acquaint psychology students with psychological research. To get a true sense of psychological science, it is imperative that students become familiar with psychological research. B) REQUIREMENT: All students in Psychology 101 must earn 9 research credits. C) EVALUATION: 1. Students who complete the Psychology 101 RPG requirement (9 credits) receive the grade earned in the class. 2. Students who are otherwise passing the course and do not complete the Psychology 101 RPG requirement (9 credits) receive a grade of Incomplete. D) RESOLVING INCOMPLETES: 1.
