Studies approved as Exempt do not expire.
Studies approved as Expedited will typically not expire. The IRB has the ability to require a continuing review and determine how frequently the continuing review will be required.
Studies approved as Full Board expire every year. The PI must follow IRB procedures for submitting a continuing review at least 30 days prior to the annual expiration date which can be found here.

☐Surveys, questionnaires, sample questions
☐Description of software or online testing applications
☐Permission to conduct research on organization letterhead with signature (if applicable)
