Research Affiliates

The University of Georgia’s collaborators and affiliates are important contributors to our research community.

If you are a remote collaborator (meaning not physically coming to campus) or your visit is intended to perform research-related services for UGA (such as a lab inspection, audit, etc.) we may assign you a UGA identity as a Research Affiliate.

Alternatively, if you will physically come to a UGA campus to collaborate or participate in research with a faculty member (and it is not part of an official UGA program), then you will need to request that your UGA faculty contact process your visit via the Visiting Researcher/Scholar procedure. Please email vrs@uga.edu with questions about this process.

If you are physically coming to UGA to participate in research and it is part of an official UGA program, then your situation describes a “Program Participant” and your program director should contact the UGA Card Office to process your visit.

Research Affiliate status may be requested via the Research Affiliate Request Form and can be completed by the person requesting this status.
