Submission Deadlines for Academic Year 2018 - 2019

The IRB reviews exempt and expedited applications on an ongoing basis throughout the academic year, including summer.  We review full board applications at regularly scheduled meetings on the fourth Wednesday of each month during the normal academic year, with the exception of December, and as needed in the summer (typically the last Friday in May, June, and July). To be considered for full board review at a scheduled meeting, applications need to be complete and submitted through IRB Manager (login required) at least two weeks prior to the scheduled meeting date (see below).

Please note that reviews of all applications may be delayed during school breaks and holidays. So, please plan accordingly.

Important Note

In preparation for the transition to the Revised Common Rule that is scheduled to take effect on January 21, 2019, the IRB will suspend the normal review process from December 15, 2018 and January 21, 2019, and the IRB not accept applications between December 15, 2018 and January 6, 2019.

  • Applications submitted before December 15 that are eligible for exempt status or expedited review will be reviewed under the current guidelines. 
  • Applications that require full board review should be submitted no later than November 14 to be considered under the current guidelines.  If you plan to submit an application that requires full board review after this date and want it to be reviewed under the current guidelines, please contact the IRB Chair.
  • All new applications submitted on or after January 7, 2019 must comply with the Revised Common Rule and will be reviewed under this rule starting on January 21.
