The Human Subjects Review Council recommends that principal investigators turn in research proposals at least six weeks prior to scheduled HSRC meetings. Processing time may be longer depending on the HSRC workload at the time of submission. It is strongly recommended that all applications (especially those under deadlines due to grant funding) be submitted as early as possible.
The following dates have been scheduled for the Academic Year 2014-2015: Oct. 8, Nov. 5, Dec. 10, Jan. 14, Feb. 4, Mar. 4, Apr. 8, May 6, and Jun. 10.
