Paid Subject Pool

The Department keeps a list of those interested in participating in research for pay. The information on the list is confidential. A subject (person who participates in the research project) can be anyone: an undergraduate student, graduate student, staff member, faculty or someone unrelated to the University.

When a researcher has a need for subjects, they review the list and call those who meet the criteria for their specific study. The researcher will also coordinate payment for participation, which will be processed through either the UM Payroll Office or Cashier's Office depending on whether the subject is a UM employee.


The Introductory Psychology Subject Pool allows for Introductory Psychology students to take a more active role in learning major concepts in the course. The studies are designed and run by Psychology faculty, graduate students, and senior honors theses. No identifying information about participants will ever be used in connection to the results of the studies.

Below is the link to the Sharepoint site where Student Participants, Researchers, and Principle Investigators (PI's) can access all the information needed for Subject Pool. If you have additional questions, feel free to contact:
