What are the IRB Deadlines for the Academic Year?

The IRB committee regularly reviews proposals during the fall and spring semesters (rolling deadlines for expedited reviews; on the 1st and 15th of each month for full reviews), and does not typically review proposals after the last day of classes in the spring and prior to matriculation convocation in the fall; therefore, researchers should make appropriate plans. Usually, the first committee meeting of the academic year is during the first week of the fall semester. For additional information, visit the IRB website or contact Dr. Maria Lowe, IRB Chair.
