The IRB has sole responsibility for determining if a research protocol is classified as Exempt, Expedited, or Full Board for review purposes. Researchers will be notified within 48 hours of receipt of the research protocol as to the review classification.

Exempt research protocols are reviewed on a rolling basis.
