Review Categories & Timeline

NOTE: Out of respect for our faculty reviewers' teaching obligations and personal vacation time, the IRB will not process new expedited applications submitted after Wed. Nov. 16, due to the upcoming holidays, final exam week, and winter break. Expedited applications submitted after Nov. 16 will be processed at the beginning of winter term.

Exempt and DNP submissions will be processed according to submission order; however, the IRB will be closed during Thanksgiving break and from Sat. Dec. 17 to Monday, Jan. 9.
