CITI Program and Regulatory Training

Prior to submitting a proposal, all researchers must complete CITI Program courses.

To access the CITI program, please log in here:   https://www.citiprogram.org/  

To register for the first time through Villanova, enter “Villanova University” in the “Select Your Organization Affiliation” box.  Follow the subsequent prompts to set yourself up as a learner.  

If you have completed the required modules within the last two years at another institution, please link your existing CITI profile to Villanova.  Instructions for doing so are at the first link above. 

Each course module consists of instructional text, related case studies, and a quiz.  The quiz can be retaken until a minimum passing score of 80% is achieved.  If you have any questions about this program, please contact the Office of Grants and Contracts.
