Institutional Review Board

Procedures

  • After the applied dissertation committee and the ARC have approved the proposal, the student should electronically forward, via ADRIANA, a copy of the approved proposal together with the completed IRB submission package to the ARC for review (see the IRB section of the ARC website).
  • It is suggested that the student begin preparing the IRB documents when the chair states that the proposal is near approval. Doing this will conserve time.
  • The chair must review all IRB documents before submission.
