STUDENT PROJECTS - Special Instructions

For student projects, faculty sponsors must complete training in line with the student’s research approval request. 

Student applicants must invite their faculty sponsor/s to collaborate on the application so the faculty sponsor/s may receive reviewer comments and updates.  Click the Invite Collaborators link at the top right of this box, under the social and follow buttons.  


For projects that meet the definition of research, collection of data may not begin until you have received an approval for your Exempt or Non-Exempt protocol.  You may use this form to submit your protocol.

All investigators (faculty, staff and students – anyone named as personnel on a non-exempt research project) and faculty serving as faculty sponsor for non-exempt student research projects are required to complete human subjects research training before human subjects research can begin. 

Training is recommended for exempt research but not mandatory at this time. if, however, a request for exemption is deemed to be non-exempt, training must be completed prior to approval. 

You must attach the current (un-expired) certification for ALL investigators with this protocol application. Please see the Training page for more information. 


We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
