Waiver of Informed Consent
Dear NMU Graduate,
We are asking you to complete our graduation survey because you are graduating from Northern Michigan University this semester!
This waiver is provided to acknowledge that your consent to participate in NMU’s graduate project is given by completing our survey.
Your participation in this study is confidential. That means that any identifying information collected in the survey will only be used by our administrative staff to process survey results. Any reports displayed on the Institutional Research website will be based on group data and will not identify you or any other individuals as participants in this project.
There are no known risks of participating in this study, and you will not benefit personally. However, we hope that others may benefit in the future from what we learn as a result of this study.
Completing this survey is completely voluntary. If you decide not to be in this study, or if you stop participating at any time, you will not be penalized or lose any benefits for which you would otherwise qualify.
