Full Board Meeting Dates

During a full board meeting, all voting IRB members discuss pending research proposals that may pose greater than minimal risk to participants. Please keep in mind that projects that will require full board review need to be submitted two weeks before the committee meeting. Full board IRB Committee meeting dates appear below.

  • If you find yourself unsure whether or not your project will require full board review, you may contact IRB@stedwards.edu so that we can help you to make that determination. You may also wish to review the FAQ, General subsection, for more about which projects require full board review.
  • Research proposals that are not likely to require full board review may be submitted anytime during the school year and are reviewed by a small reviewer team; the dates below do not impact these projects. 
  • Only Requests for Exemption are processed June-August. There may be some situations where an Expedited proposal can be reviewed.

Submission Deadlines

  • Proposals that are likely to require a full board review should be submitted through the SEU IRB Portal at least fourteen (14) days in advance of a meeting date to ensure a timely reply from the IRB. Missing this recurring deadline may lead to delays in your timeline. In general, the process of a full board review will take longer than that of an expedited or exemption review.
