We charge a nominal $25 fee for NIU students, $50 for other clients, for the first meeting. The first meeting usually lasts from one-half to one hour. Hourly fees (see below) apply for services provided beyond the first meeting.
Clients are charged hourly fees for services beyond the first half an hour. Our current fee schedule follows:
NIU Undergraduate Student $25
NIU Graduate Student $30
NIU Staff $50
NIU Faculty/Administrators/Departments $100
Clients who engage in sponsored research are encouraged to include statistical consulting in their proposals. This can take the form of a direct-cost line item, a partial or full graduate assistantship, or partial funding of faculty member.
If the project calls for a standard statistical design and analyses, then co-authorship with us is usually not appropriate. If the project involves nonstandard statistical techniques, then co-authorship is encouraged.
