IRB Review Dates

IRB Review Dates During the 2023-24 Academic Year

Academic year: Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis and reviewed monthly. During the 2023-24 academic year, the specific review dates are: Sept 20, Oct 25, Nov 29, Jan 24, Feb 14, Mar 6, Apr 10, and May 22. Students on a study away program may work with the Center for Study Away to accommodate their schedule. Decisions are typically returned in 7-10 days. A researcher should not wait until the last minute to submit an application. If applications are incomplete or do not include appropriate supplementary materials, reviews may take longer. The IRB goes on hiatus during the winter break. If you plan to collect data during that time, submit your application by the November review date.

Summer: Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis and reviewed once a month. In 2023, the IRB summer review dates are Jun 27th, July 25th, and August 29th. If you are facing a deadline to begin data collection, you should alert the IRB chair. The IRB will try but cannot promise to accommodate your schedule.
