RAIS VPN requirement when off-campus

As of June 30, 2020, your off-campus access to the Research Administration Information System (RAIS) online platform will require access via Virtual Private Network (VPN). If your personal computer or laptop is not connected to VPN, you will be taken to a white screen, that does not include any instructions. You will need to have VPN installed and connected on your machine, before accessing RAIS.

HRE course-based deadlines

In order to ensure that the applications can be approved in time for the start of the course, the Human Research Ethics Board wishes to receive the completed Course-Based Ethics Applications at least one month before the start of the term in which the course is scheduled to begin. This deadline is necessary to ensure that we can provide the UVic community with the required review, including possible required revisions, and approvals for the increasing numbers of human research ethics applications. The deadline applies to all courses where students are provided with the opportunity to conduct research with human participants.
