IRB Protocol Forms

NOTE FOR EDUCATION RESEARCHERS: Due to the volume of Millersville education students undertaking research in local public schools, principles and school district administrators require the MU IRB to provide a full review of all protocols involving public school students. Furthermore, all protocols for school-based research require a letter of support from the school principal or relevant administrator. This letter must accompany the protocol and must be printed on school letterhead.

Request for IRB Protocol Number for Pending Research For use by researchers planning to submit funding proposals to Millersville University or outside agencies where an IRB Protocol Number is required. The researcher, if awarded the grant funding, will need to follow up with a full Human Subjects Review Protocol before implementing the project. Please submit your request HERE.

Human Subjects Review Protocol - Submission Form
The Human Subjects Review Protocol form for all researchers must be submitted and approved by the IRB before implementing the project. Additional information regarding Informed Consent can be found HERE. All documents must be submitted as a single PDF. Protocols submitted as multiple documents or that are incomplete will be returned without review. Please submit completed protocols HERE

Request for Extension of Previously Approved Protocol
Previously approved protocols that require a time extension for the completion of research must be reviewed by the IRB. Requests for extension should be made to the IRB six weeks prior to the protocol's expiration date.

Please contact Dr. Muñoz at ext. 4457 or by email at with any questions. Include the phrase "IRB Question" in the subject line.
