Make a full-time commitment to the REU Program
and to their research project. Employment outside of the REU Program
is highly discouraged.
Present research project and findings at the closing research symposium.
Be a responsible and conscientious visiting scholar. Conduct that infringes
upon the rights of others to an orderly living environment or that poses danger
to self or others is not acceptable under any circumstances.
Adhere to all Northern Illinois University
policies and Illinois state laws. Failure to meet program expectations, to adhere to Northern Illinois University campus policies, and/or violations of Illinois State Law will
result in dismissal from the REU Program and forfeiture of monetary
stipend and program benefits. Violations of Illinois State Law are subject to
penalties as determined by state or local authorities.
Not register for any classes during the REU summer session, as it would
conflict with your research experience. However, we encourage you to explore
receiving independent study credit for your REU participation at your home
