The Undergraduate Research Scholar Transcript Designation is given to more fully recognize the accomplishments of USU's undergraduate researchers, as such accomplishments often occur outside of the classroom and thus outside of regular credit-earning activity. Please have all the information 1-2 months before graduation. Please contact the Office of Research and Graduate Studies for more information
