Watch a video tutorial of the new HSRB system 

You will select your application type as part of the application process. Application types include:

  • Full Board Review
  • Expedited Review
  • Requests for Exemption
  • Classroom Research
  • Oral History Registrations
  • Modifications Request
  • Continuation Request
  • Study Closure

To apply for HSRB review, complete the following steps:

  1. Complete the CITI (Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative).
  2. Determine the level of risk of the proposed research and whether the research might be exempt from the need for HSRB approval. Please refer to the Hope HSRB Decision Tree.
  3. Complete and submit your HSRB application using the HSRB Online Application Management System.

The HSRB strives to consider proposals received by the 1st or the 15th of a given month before the next deadline. For example, the Board will make every effort to consider all proposals received between October 1 and October 15 by November 1.
