IBC Applications


All IBC applications available online are Word files (.doc). If you would prefer rich text files (.rtf), please email ORP-Biosafety@psu.edu.

UPDATE: Effective immediately, all submissions may be made with an electronic application and remitted via e-mail to the ORP at ORP-Biosafety@psu.edu. All submissions must be sent from the Principal Investigator's CAC account.

To download and submit an application:

  • Click on the link to the desired format of the appropriate application.

  • Save the document locally (i.e., desktop, hard drive, etc.) - applications that are completed while online will not be saved. Save your document  at routine intervals and when complete to prevent information loss.

  • Click within the space provided on application and type in the complete answers.

  • After completing and again locally saving the form, click on the ‘SEND TO THE ORP' link at the bottom of the application.

  • Use the blank e-mail that pops up to send the application to the ORP. The correct address (ORP-Biosafety@psu.edu) is automatically entered into the e-mail. All submissions MUST be sent from the Principal Investigator's CAC account (i.e., xyz123@psu.edu).

  • Attach the application to the e-mail and click SEND.
