The IRB is currently reviewing exempt and expedited IRB applications and addenda on a rolling basis. Researchers do not need to wait for an upcoming meeting.
*** 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. ***

**During the month of July and August there may be delays in reviewing IRB submissions. Please prepare accordingly.
* For the Fall 2018 semester, we may not be able to process new submissions after December 10, 2018, due to inadequate time to review IRB applications. You can still submit to the IRB. However; we cannot guarantee that it will be reviewed prior to January 22, 2019. Faculty are not on campus during winter break and so expect delays in processing submissions between December 24, 2018 – January 22, 2019. Regular submission may resume on Wednesday, January 23, 2019.
* Meeting dates may be subject to change without notice and may result in a longer review period.
