Statements of Regulatory Adherence

Fees for Human Subjects Research

The Human Subjects Protection Program charges fees for the review of human subject research that is industry sponsored or projects federally funded that have a single IRB requirement for multi-site research where the University of Arizona is the IRB of record. Fees are NOT charged for projects where there is no funding at all, not industry sponsored, or are not a federally funded multi-site study. All IRB fees are due upon submission to the Human Subjects Protection Program. See fee schedule for more information. Note, in rare cases the IRB fee may be waived. Please contact Mariette Marsh (marshM@arizona.edu) for a fee waiver.

  • Fees are based on full IRB or expedited review, regardless of whether or not the project is initiated.
  • Investigators and/or departments are responsible for fee payment, regardless of whether or not the sponsor reimburses them.

Submission Schedule

IRB Full Committee Meetings are scheduled for the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month, with the exception of November and December, which may have meetings on the 2nd and 3rd Tuesday.

Items for review must be submitted at least two (2) weeks prior to the meeting, and the application must be complete, with all revisions complete one (1) week prior to meeting. If you have any questions, contact the HSPP.

Items that do not need to go before the Full Committee are reviewed by IRB staff in the order received. If you have any questions, contact the HSPP.
