The following tutorials will walk you through the submission process:

Cayuse Training Site 

A training site is available for users to familiarize themselves with the Cayuse IRB application process. Please use the training version of the software before submitting a formal application. The site is an exact duplicate of the official Cayuse IRB software site, but the two sites are not linked to one another. 

Important note: You will not be able to submit an application for review from the training site.

Login to Cayuse’s Training Site
How to Enter the Training Site
  • Log in with your Merrimack username.
  • Use the password: merrimack (all lower case).
  • Choose “Cayuse IRB (Human Studies Compliance).”

Note: If you experience any difficulty reaching the Cayuse site, it is suggested that you try using a different browser.
