Applications and Forms
IRB applications can now be submitted EITHER using the traditional hard copy way OR using our new online submission system called “Cayuse IRB.”
BOTH types of applications will be accepted until the end of Spring Semester, 2017.
If you choose to use our new online system:
- Be sure to click here to download the instructions for online submission using the new Cayuse System. Please do not attempt to use this system without using these instructions.
IF THIS IS YOUR FIRST TIME SUBMITTING ANY IRB APPLICATION AT USD AND YOU WANT TO USE THE ONLINE SYSTEM, YOU MUST FIRST EMAIL IRB Coordinator Lori Ermac-Nash at: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have never submitted an IRB application at USD, the online system will NOT recognize you. Lori must first set up your information before you begin an online application. Email Lori with a message that you are a first-time IRB applicant and want to use the IRB online system. Be sure to specify your role (student, faculty, staff). If you are a student, please include your faculty advisor’s name.
Beginning September 1, 2010, only the following new forms will be accepted. Please discard any previous versions.
