IRB in the Summer
- Exempt and expedited proposals will still be accepted on an extended approval time. Expect approval to take three to four weeks.
- Full board proposals are not accepted during the summer. Any full board review that is submitted to the IRB during the summer will need to wait for the fall semester to be reviewed.
- Modifications and continuations will still be accepted.
There have been a handful of changes to the IRB and the common rule. Read up on the most recent changes before submitting a proposal.Close
About the IRB
The Institutional Review Board is a federally mandated department that is responsible for ensuring the protection of human research participants.
Forms & Templates
When conducting research at the College involving human research subjects, it is important to follow the proper protocol. You can find all the necessary forms for your research proposal here.
The board meets on a bi-weekly basis during the semester. Proposals that are contingent on a full board review must be received at least one week before the board meeting in order to be considered.
For levels of review, proposal checklists, and any additional information on completing your proposal, our proposal guidance webpage can help.
