IRB Deadlines & Meeting Dates

IRB Timelines

Except during holidays and other university closures, Exempt, DNP, and Expedited applications -- all now submitted via the SU OneAegis system -- are reviewed on a rolling basis throughout the calendar year.

Please note that because of personnel changes in the IRB Office that are occurring in Fall Quarter 2023, review of Exempt, DNP, and Expedited applications is taking longer than usual. We appreciate your patience.

Also, please note that if you submit an application as "Exempt" that we then judge to be Expedited or Full-Board, this slows down the review process.

PIs must submit Full-Board protocols by 5 p.m. on the Friday three weeks before convened board meetings via the SU OneAegis system. Applications submitted after 5 p.m. will be processed/reviewed for the subsequent month meeting. No exceptions.

See Review Categories & Timeline for more information.

The IRB invites PIs (and faculty advisers) to attend a portion of the Full-Board meeting to answer questions and provide clarifications that the Board may need. This process, which is framed as a conversational opportunity, allows the review process to proceed more swiftly and facilitates a faster determination.
