Human Subjects Research Certification

The Henderson State University Institutional Review Board requires all faculty and students who submit research proposals to be trained and certified in the protection of human subjects. This training is provided by the Office of Human Research Protections and offered for through Henderson State with a special code. Email from your Henderson email with your Henderson State Id to receive code. Visit the site, complete the tutorial and save your certificate in an electronic format. Certificates are valid for four years. After that time the researcher must repeat the training to renew their certificate. The university will also accept training from other entities (e.g. CITI) as long as it is up to date.


Our IRB only accepts electronic submissions of IRB proposals using a service called IRBnet. To submit a project in IRBnet, follow the steps outlined on our Additional Help for Submitting a Study page.
