Welcome to the eCompliance Human Subjects webpage! Find all the latest information about KU’s new online system for Human Subjects Research here.

Access eCompliance
Faculty, staff and graduate students can access the system at using their KU online id and password.  Undergraduate students may not have system privileges and should contact HRPP with any questions.

eCompliance will receive an upgrade on January 12, 2018, around 10 PM. The new system will now require that investigators choose whether their study is a Single-Site Study or a Multi-Site Study. To start, please review the guidance below. If you have questions, email HRPP.
