Students enrolled in particular psychology courses earn bonus points towards course credits from participating in psychological research studies that are approved by KPU REB and registered for Psychology Lab Research Pool. The research credit/bonus point distribution will be given differently based on the instructors' decision. 

For each research study you participate in, you may earn bonus points towards one course you are currently attending. Please check your course outline or contact us for details.
