Level of IRB Review

The level of review is determined by the IRB Chair or designee, not the doctoral student, chair, committee/project team members, other faculty, administrators, or someone from a collaborating organization. The IRB Review Form is designed to collect all the information needed to appropriately review your proposed activity. Once your form and supplemental materials are sent to the IRB, the decision tree in Figure 1 (IRB Decision Tree) is used.
