Welcome to Santa Clara University eProtocol system, a web-based online Institutional Review Board (IRB)/ Human Subjects Application Submissions.   


To access the eProtocol system you will need to contact the Site Administrator for a user ID and password. The Site Administrator can be contacted at 408-554-4408 or at for any questions or concerns.




In an effort to eliminate apparent immediate hazards to subjects (45 CFR 46.108(3)(iii)) and the Santa Clara University community, all IN-PERSON visits for human research activities must be suspended until further notice.


In light of this urgency around COVID-19, the SCU Institutional Review Board is NOTrequiring prior review of some protocol changes, e.g., implementing online or phone visits or other changes designed to protect participant health and safety.  Understanding that resources must be prioritized, please track these changes and file a modification in eProtocol when your schedule allows. The IRB is available to assist you with these modifications. Please contact Esther for assistance.
