How to Submit to the IRB

When a student completes their IRB application and submits it for the first time, the application will be sent directly to the Chair/Mentor. The Chair/Mentor will only need to verify two things:

  1. Verify that you are the Chair/Mentor
  2. Verify that the title of the study aligns with what the student has been working on

Once verified, the Chair/Mentor may submit the application to the IRB. No further action is required beyond these two items. 

Please note that the application will only be submitted to the Chair/Mentor for the student's first submission. Beyond this, communication will be between the student and IRB/IRB reviewers. 

To submit a student's IRB application, please follow the steps below: 

  1. Login to IRBManager
  2. Click on the "xForms" tab,
  3. Click on the "IRB Application" that you would like to submit,
  4. Verify that you are the Chair/Mentor,
  5. Verify that the title of the study aligns said student's study, 
  6. Scroll to the bottom of the application,
  7. If the information is correct select "Yes" for "Chair/Mentor Determination,"
  8. Import/upload your CITI training
  9. Click "Next," then "Submit"
