*** Instead of receiving submissions on a rolling basis, they will be accepted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org on Wednesdays of every week in the semester, processed on Thursdays and Fridays and researchers should receive a response by the following Monday. The process for submitting and reviewing projects that require Full Review will remain the same. You can still submit to the IRB any day; however we cannot guarantee processing until the following Wednesday. ***

Regular submission may resume on Wednesday, January 17, 2018.
