The full IRB meets throughout the academic year in accordance with the aforementioned schedule.  Submissions for full review should be submitted in accordance with the deadlines noted above.  Submissions for expedited review may be made at any time and will be reviewed on a “first come, first served” basis.  Once the completed application is received, the IRB seeks a turnaround time of approximately two weeks for expedited reviews and no more than one month for full reviews.

The IRB does not meet during the summer months: June, July, and August.  If submissions for expedited review are made during this period, the turnaround time may be longer due to limited reviewer availability.  Please contact the chair of the IRB for further information.
