Participants, You can create your own Sona account by clicking on the "Request an Account" link on the bottom right side of the screen. Your User ID (which must be your Panther ID) and password will be emailed to you.

Assigning Sona Credits Participants must assign each credit earned to a specific class. You cannot use the same credit for multiple classes. Please make these assignments for each individual credit through Sona-systems after that credit has been administered to you.

MISSING A SONA STUDY If you miss your study time slot please contact the researcher in charge of that study – even if it is after the missed time slot. An unexcused absence occurs when a student misses a study time slot and fails to contact the researcher (either before or after the missed time slot). PLEASE NOTE Researchers are not obligated to overturn unexcused absences. However, failing to contact the researcher at all when you've missed their study leaves them no choice but to mark an absence as unexcused. Each unexcused absence is worth a penalty point that counts against your total SONA credits. Students who accrue two penalty points will no longer be able to access Sona Systems to participate in research for the remainder of the semester. See the FAQ section on your SONA account for instructions on how to contact a researcher.
