Attention: As of January 1, 2018, CITI training is required of all A&M-Central Texas researchers before filing an IRB protocol application; we will no longer accept protocols for those with NIH training.  Please ensure that all individuals listed on the protocol/working with human subjects as part of the research team have completed the appropriate CITI course and have a current certificate before submitting the IRB protocol; for most people that course is the Social-Behavioral-Educational (SBE) Basic course.  Please consult the IRB Handbook for more information or, if you have any questions about these policies, contact the Research Compliance Officer at 

Permission from study/recruitment sites(s) outside TAMUCT

Please submit written permission from your proposed study site with your IRB protocol application and supplemental materials. Permission from the site does not need to be in a specific format, other than written (i.e. letter, email, etc.).

At minimum, the permission letter MUST include:

Digital Signature Instruction
