  • Enter WUSTL Key and password.
  • Click on the tab labeled ‘forms’ which is just below the InnovateIP logo.
  • Click the red ‘Fill Out New Form’ button.
  • Choose between “Disclosure Form”, “MTA In Request Form”, or ‘MTA Out Request Form’.
  • The user will then be asked to enter the requisite information in an online form.
  • If you are unable to complete the form, click the save button at the bottom of the page and InnovateIP will retain the form to be completed later.
  • Once all the information is entered, click the ‘submit’ button at the bottom of the page.  If any of the information was entered incorrectly, the form will highlight those questions that require additional information.
  • Once submitted, OTM will review the form and will follow-up.
