Human Subject Incentive Program (HSIP)

Many studies are conducted outside of the department subject pool and involve payment to participants. These activities are governed by the policies of the Institutional Review Board. All payments given to study participants need to be processed through the University’s Human Subject Incentive Payments (HSIP) system in Wolverine Access. 

Students who would like to pay participants from their debit funds or a Rackham award, please contact the SAA office at
