The Center for Research and Evaluation (CRE) offers a free one-hour initial consultation.

After the initial consultation, an hourly rate of $110.00 will be charged. The investigator will be billed on a monthly basis until the project completion.

Alternatively, the preferred method of payment is that the investigator retain a percentage of the faculty's time for services. A minimum of 5% effort independent of funding cuts is necessary.
