Step 1
CITI Training

Go to the CITI website, create an account, and affiliate with Montclair State University. Take the courses relevant to your research. e.g. HSR for Human Subjects Research.


Step 2
Request Cayuse Account (for Human Subject Researchers)

Request a Cayuse IRB/424 account. Your Cayuse account provides you access to Montclair State University’s online IRB submission and grant proposal systems.


Step 3
Touch Base with Compliance Committees

Meet your relevant compliance committee (IRB, IACUC, IBC) and discuss the regulations that your research must comply by. Discuss the process of moving your existing research to Montclair State University – i.e. establishing an IRB Authorization Agreement with your former institution.
