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.
