When can I expect to receive my compensation?
Each study approaches compensation in a different way, but there are a couple of common points to share. If you will be compensated for your participation in a study, be sure to check with your study team about your expectations. Generally speaking, if you are receiving a lump sum of money, cheques will be prepared by the University of Guelph's Financial Services and mailed to you directly. This process can take up to 6-8 weeks. Other studies may choose to compensate with gift cards, and these are typically given directly to you at a study visit.
