Further IRB approval is required to make changes to your research design. Changes that require IRB approval include, but are not limited to, participant recruitment, number of participants, research instrument modifications, and changes to the consent form. When submitting modifications, you should turn in a continuation/modification request form to the IRB Coordinator with the proposal number and title. Include all supporting documents that have been modified (surveys, recruitment flyers, consent forms, etc.).
Be sure to allow at least two weeks for review. You cannot implement any changes until you receive approval from the IRB Administrator. You will be notified of approval in writing by the IRB Coordinator. Please note that a modification does not change the approval/termination dates; the modification approval is effective within the approval period of the entire project.
