All USM faculty and graduate students must have completed the CITI Common Course. All IRB researchers must have active (NON-EXPIRED) CITI certificates for both the Human Subjects Research Course and the Common Course. All IACUC researchers must have active (NON-EXPIRED) for both the Animal Subjects Research Course and the Common Course.

Cayuse integrates with CITI by means of the user's USM assigned email address. Since Cayuse login requires USM credentials, your CITI certificates also must be tied to your USM email address. The integration will fail and your IRB submission will not be reviewed if your email address in CITI is @gmail, @hotmail, @yahoo, etc. If you do not know your USM assigned email address, contact ITech at 601.266.HELP (4357).
