Forms and Templates


 

Revised Student as PI form now available!: A newly revised NC Student as Principal Investigator Form is now available, as of 11/3/2021. Student investigators are not required to transition existing Student as PI forms to the new template. However, student investigators are expected to use this revised template on new studies moving forward. The revised form is available here.

 

APPLICATION

All new studies are to be submitted through the iRIS electronic submission system: iris.ou.edu.

 

CONSENT FORM TEMPLATES

Please note: Consent forms should not be signed by participants until AFTER the study is approved. Once approved, you will need to log into iRIS and print off the stamped version of the consent form, make copies of this form, and then have participants sign this version of the form prior to completing the study activities. Please see the How to Find your Stamped Consent Form page for guidance on finding the form after approval.

PLEASE NOTE: If you have received NIH funding, or have obtained a Certificate of Confidentiality, please see our Certificates of Confidentiality guidance page for required consent language.
