Submitting An Amendment

Step 1

Complete the amendment form. The amendment form can be found on the Forms & Templates page.

Step 2

Submit the electronically signed amendment form via email along with any new or revised supporting materials directly to the IRB for review. If the amendment changes any of the information within the currently approved protocol application, the application must be revised to accurately reflect the research going forward.

Step 3

If the IRB asks for revisions or additional information, prepare revised/additional materials and submit them to the IRB, along with a cover memo itemizing the changes/additions.

Step 4

Once you have appropriately addressed all of the IRBs concerns, the IRB will issue an approval memo, and you are authorized to implement your proposed amendment.

Please Note: Proposed amendment changes can not be initiated until they are approved by the IRB.​
