IRB office hours is a space for students and faculty to ask questions to NCU IRB staff. We can answer questions about NCU IRB processes, procedures, requirements, services, and feedback. Please note that we will not review your IRB application or documents during office hours.
Please note that you must schedule an appointment below to attend IRB Office Hours. Before you schedule your appointment, please review all materials on this page.
To attend IRB Office Hours, you must schedule an appointment. You will be allowed to schedule one (1) 15-minute appointment slot per day. 15 minutes will be reserved for you to present your topic of discussion and receive guidance. Please note that we must firmly abide by the 15-minute time allowance for each appointment.
If you miss your scheduled time, you will need to reschedule your appointment. There are other people arriving for their appointment and we want to respect everyone's time. If you arrive late, you will be removed from the waiting room.
If you arrive early you will wait in the ZOOM waiting room. If the appointment prior to yours ended early, you may be brought into the meeting early.
No, you may not schedule more than one (1) Office Hours appointment per day. To ensure that we are able to reach as many researchers as possible, you will not be permitted to sign up for more than one (1) Office Hours appointment in a single day. Any additional Office Hours appointments on the same day will be canceled.
Currently, Office Hours are held at the following times:
