How do I know when my research study has been approved?

Question

How do I know when my study has been approved?

Answer

As a student, passing the prospectus task (or IRB task for Teachers College non-licensure students) indicates that your project was deemed "exempt" from IRB review. If your capstone project is referred for expedited or full review, your course mentor will receive written notification of the status of your study following Institutional Review Board (IRB) review, usually by email. The IRB will also identify any required revisions or conditions at that time. WGU's IRB will respond directly to employee research proposals with official communication.
