IRB Meeting Dates & Deadlines

Research Integrity

Electronic submission with all Departmental Approvals must be received in the IRB office by the posted deadlines.

Before a study is submitted to the IRB, departmental approvals must be obtained.

The eIRB system automatically routes the study to the approving individuals along with a notification email. If required approvals are incomplete, the current “State” of the study under the study’s main page will be "Department Review.” In this case, the department reviewers may not have issued approval for the study. Departmental approvals must be taken into consideration when trying to meet IRB deadlines. Example: If the submit button was selected but not all departmental approvals have signed off, the study has not been received by the IRB thus if it is deadline day your study will not have made the deadline.

The IRB does not have your application until all of the necessary prior approvals have been completed.

The state will then change to “IRB staff review”. An application is not complete and deemed received by the IRB until the state changes to “IRB staff Review
