Human Subjects Research

Main Content

Due to the recent changes on campus to COVID-19 the Human Subjects Office is no longer meeting with students and faulty in person. In addition, we will no longer be holding office hours. We will answer any questions you may have over the phone or by email.


Any Human Subjects applications that is submitted to our office takes about 10-14 days for the review process. 


The SIUC Human Subjects Committee is responsible for reviewing all human-subjects research projects, regardless of discipline or funding source, conducted by individuals affiliated with SIUC, including students. This review protects not only the human subjects involved in a research project, but also the researcher and, by extension, the University.  No research involving human subjects should be conducted before determining if the research is subject to HSC review and, if so, receives HSC approval. All Human Subject's applications must be submitted and reviewed by our human subjects coordinator. Some research is not considered human subjects research. The HSC is the decider on this determination not the researcher. If a project is considered not human subjects research, then our office will send you a determination letter.
