Prior to Submitting an Application
Before submitting an application to the IRB, principal investigators (those conducting the study) and dissertation chairs must have the following completed:
- CITI Training (there are four (4) certifications required by Westcliff University. Dissertation chairs must submit through the Dissertation Department. Doctoral students must submit to GAP)
- Review of application (Applications must be complete and devoid of mechanical errors. Should you wish to receive feedback on clarity, mechanics, and format of the application, set an appointment with a Doctoral Writing Specialist)
No data may be collected until the IRB approval has been obtained.
Should the application to IRB be for dissertation related work, this must be submitted by the Dissertation Chair
