Researcher Training


Department Specific IRB Requirements


The School of Education has asked the IRB not to review School of Education doctoral candidates' research applications until the following have occurred:

  • Candidates have successfully defended their dissertation proposals
  • The proposed study has been reviewed by research consultants

Please note: IRB review will not begin until after both requirements are met. Researchers who submit IRB applications prior to the completion of the prerequisites will be informed of the requirements and instructed to contact their faculty advisors.

Don't worry; there's a procedure for this circumstance. Please read the information provided below:
