Review Dates and Deadlines for the 2014-2015 Academic Year:
IRB Proposal submissions and applications are accepted anytime; however, there is a monthly deadline associated with their review(s). The monthly deadline for review(s) is the 7th of the month during the academic year. Application submissions received past the 7th of the month will be reviewed beginning on the 7th of the subsequent month. For example, application received between September 7th and October 7h will be reviewed starting October 7th. Application received between October 8th and November 7th would begin the review process starting November 7th. This monthly pattern would follow for other months in the academic year.
Summer reviews will be done using a similar timeframe, but will be dependent upon the type of proposal. Generally, exempt and expedited reviews can be evaluated over the summer, whereas full board reviews cannot. Full board review proposals received in the summer will be reviewed in the fall semester.
Properly completed proposals generally take 1-2 weeks to approve (if exempt or expedited), or 3-4 weeks to approve (if full board) after the monthly deadline (i.e., the 7th of each month).
