Forms and Documents


The request to work with animals in research, teaching, or testing activities must be submitted on an Animal Care and Use Protocol (ACUP) form. This form is designed in Microsoft Word and should be completed using a computer. No handwritten copies will be accepted. The form should be completed in full with no blanks. Use "N/A" if certain sections are not applicable. It is always suggested that you download the form from this website each time and not use a version you might have saved. Older versions of the ACUP will not be accepted.

You are required to submit one (1) fully signed original AND one (1) electronic copy of the ACUP.

  • The signed ACUP original should be mailed to:

If your protocol requires a minor modification during its approval period, you will need to complete and submit the Protocol Modification form to the IACUC for approval prior to implementing the change.
