Spring 2018 IRB Submission Deadlines & Meeting Schedule

As of January 1, 2017, protocols requiring full review must be submitted eight (8) business days in advance of the IRB meeting date. Protocols will be added to meeting agendas on a first-submitted, first-reviewed basis. If more than three protocols have been submitted for a meeting date, those submitted last may be bumped to the next IRB meeting. For protocols requiring full review, the schedule is as follows:

There is no deadline for exempt and expedited level reviews; these are completed on a continual basis. The Institutional Review Board meets as needed during J-term and summer months.

Board meetings for full review may be canceled if there are no applications for full review submitted by the deadline. In order to allow ample time for the review process, the deadline for full review project submission is no less than eight business days prior to a meeting (business days do not include weekends or holidays). Please contact the IRB Office with questions regarding the full review process.
