Researchers from UCLA or other agencies or universities who wish to conduct research at the UCLA Community School must complete the following online application, in compliance with the external research review protocols of the Los Angeles Unified School District. This includes doctoral theses, faculty research, and pilot studies. Applications by UCLA students must be cosigned by a UCLA faculty sponsor, who assumes responsibility for the conduct of the study.

Following submission of your application, you will be notified of the Review Committee's decision within approximately 21 days. If your application is approved, you still must obtain approval, or an exemption, from your institution’s Institutional Review Board. Data collection may begin only after a copy of the IRB statement of approval or exemption is received by the UCLA Community School’s Research Department. You can submit IRB information on this website, in the FILES section.
