WVU+kc IRB Protocol Access


Before conducting any research involving human subjects, including distribution of surveys, an IRB protocol must be created in WVU+kc (Kuali Coeus), WVU's electronic research administration system, seeking approval from the Institutional Review Board (IRB).

Click on the IRB Protocol Access button to submit your request. After submitting your request, you will be asked to complete a brief training module.

Please allow up to 1 business day to receive access. Normal business hours are 8:15 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday except on University holidays.


Any member of the WVU community may be granted the ability to create an IRB protocol.


There is no charge to request or use this service.
