Institutional Review Board (IRB) Intake Form
Define Your Project
The Madison College IRB consists of eight cross-functional members from the College and one external member. The IRB must review all projects that meet the definition of research and that involve human subjects prior to any data collection at the College involving College faculty/staff/students.
Please use this form to guide you in determining if your study falls into the Exempt, Expedited, or Full-Review category as defined by federal regulations.
If you have questions about what type of review may be appropriate, please contact email@example.com prior to submitting a proposal. The IRB will make all final determinations of what level of review is required.
See the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services website for more information about IRB approval requirements.
