WVU+kc Login

Use your WVU Login username and password to access WVU+kc (Kuali), the electronic research administration tool, used to submit human subject research protocols to the WVU Institutional Review Board for review. A protocol document is comprised of multiple tabbed pages where users can enter information about their human subject research, such as personnel and procedures. Each page features tabbed sections that can be expanded and collapsed independently in order to complete the required information.


Before you can create an IRB protocol in WVU+kc, you will need to be granted the appropriate role to do so. Submit a request to Information Technology Services (ITS) to request IRB protocol creator access. Please allow one business day for your access request to be processed.
