Facutly, students, and admininistratiors must plan accordingly to ensure the IRB applications are submitted based on the IRB schedule listed below.

If your application is being reviewed at one of the below schedules meetings the IRB requests the applicant and their advisor attend the meeting for applications under full board review.

FULL BOARD - Highly recommended you submit your protocol 1 1/2 months prior to the protocols intended start date
