In general, Expedited and Exempt category protocols may be submitted throughout the academic year. Expect initial reviews to take approximately 10 business days from submission for Exempt and Expedited protocols during the regular academic semesters. 

If you have an already existing, approved research protocol (Exempt or Expedited categories) and wish to modify it within the approved time period, you need to complete the request form for change(s) to an exempt or expedited approved protocol available on this site. Submit the completed form electronically to the IRB Chairperson at irbchair@uwsp.edu.  

If you have an already existing, approved Full board research protocol and wish to modify it within the first 12 months, you must complete the form for revisions to full board protocol available on this site. Any minor revisions (those that do not potentially alter the risks to participants) within the first 12 months for approved full board protocols can be reviewed by the IRB Chairperson upon completion of the form. Any major changes (those that would potentially alter the risks to the participants) within the first 12 months for approved full board protocols require the approval of the full board upon completion of the form. An example of a minor change is an addition of a UWSP student as a research assistant on the project. An example of a major change is altering the location of data collection.

Please address any questions or comments to the IRB Chairperson at irbchair@uwsp.edu  or phone (715) 346-2659.
