Application Forms

All documents must be submitted to the IRB electronically and either as a PDF or Word document.  Consent and assent forms must be submitted in the final format which the principal investigator will provide to the subject. 

All documents submitted to the IRB must display college-level writing proficiency. Please attend carefully to grammar, spelling, and punctuation. Do not submit the instructions with your application–only the actual application needs to be submitted to the committee. Please submit your complete mailing from your Augsburg e-mail address so that the IRB can communicate with you.

You may download an electronic version of the IRB Application Form (as well as other forms) from this website.
