If you have questions such as when studies will be offered, please email the pool coordinators. Researchers can only answer questions about their own studies. 

If you see a study you cannot sign up for, you are either ineligible or that study is currently not accepting participants.  Please check that you completed the demographic survey, which is required for some studies. Check the system again at a later date to look for more opportunities.

The Participant Pool is available for research projects of advanced psychology majors and psychology faculty only.
