Research Participation

Undergraduate students can participate in research studies to earn extra credit in psychology courses or to win raffled prizes. Current research studies are listed on the department’s psychology research scheduling website.

If you are interested in participating in research, please visit the psychology research scheduling website and click request account. Next, enter your name, VWU user ID, and birth date. You will be emailed your password.

After your account is created, you can log in to the system, view available research studies, and schedule times to participate. Some studies are conducted online and some studies are conducted in person. For online studies, you will be provided a link to complete the study at the time you sign-up. For in person studies, you will complete the study at the time, date, and location specified when you sign-up for your timeslot.

Please direct any questions you have about research participation and scheduling to the human subject pool manager, Dr. Robert Ariel at
