Renewal Assistance

General Guidelines for the Renewal Application:

To help researchers with the renewal process, step-by-step guides on creating and submitting a renewal are available on the iRIS Training Portal.

When to close:

If all research and data analysis are complete, a study closure can be requested. Any time human subjects’ data are being analyzed, there must be an approved IRB protocol. Even for a study closure, the entire form must be completed because this will serve as a final report for the study. The step-by-step instructions on submitting the study closure are available.

Consent Form:

If enrollment is ongoing, a consent form must be uploaded to the application. It should be in document format (.doc OR .docx) and not have the previous approval stamp on it.

Routing:

Renewals are not required to be sent through the PI and the department chair, but this option is made available to those who wish to use it.
