Each summer the GSI Ethics Course is thoroughly updated and revised to keep its information current. The 2021-2022 course will close on Friday, July 29. This version of the course site will no longer be available after July 29.

If you are currently in the process of taking the course, please plan to complete all the quizzes with a passing score by July 29 at 5 pm at the latest. This will ensure that all of your module quiz scores for the entire course will be intact.

The newly updated Ethics Course site, for the 2022-2023 academic year, will open on Monday, August 1, 2022. 

The GSI Professional Standards and Ethics Online Course is housed as a course-site in bCourses, UC Berkeley’s campus course management system. Users with a CalNet ID* will be able to enroll themselves in the course by using the following enrollment link:
