Some labs may have the funds to pay research assistants, but that is an unusual case. Instead, most research assistants are either on a volunteer basis or receive course credit for their work. This is arranged using the PSYC 460 designation through the advising office and counts towards your total number of credits for that semester (so it is important to consider whether or not you have reached the 16 credit limit with standard tuition!). This arrangement should be sorted out prior to the start of the semester and involves some paperwork and footwork on your part, so the earlier you contact potential labs, the better.
