- Video Training on Expedited or Full Review Applications
- Application Examples
- Joint Doctoral Program Cover Sheet and Instructions
Used when minor changes are being made to a currently approved protocol such as a change in researchers, population, and/or procedures. All minor changes must be reviewed and approved before they are initiated.

Application for Approval for Research Involving Human Subjects: Projects Conducted in Partial Fulfillment of Course Requirements
FOR FACULTY ONLY
This form is used by investigators with IRB approval at their home site who would like to use a CSUSM population.
Students enrolled in 1) a joint CSUSM/UCSD program or 2) CSUSM graduate program, and conducting research at a UCSD facility or with a CSUSM-affiliated site/project/population, who plan to involve human subjects in research are required to obtain approval from either the CSUSM or UCSD Institutional Review Boards in advance of initiating research. This document describes a cooperative review process that allows the UCSD and CSUSM Institutional Review Boards (IRB) to rely upon each other to avoid duplication of effort and reduce burden for investigators, IRB members and staff.
The deadline for all reviews has passed, and the IRB does not fully function during Winter Break. Applications will be reviewed on an as available basis after December 9th using our new system, IRB Net.
