Please make sure all personnel have completed personnel requirements before adding to a submission. Specifically, that means finishing CITI training and enrolling and gaining clearance in the OHSS occupational health program.

Do not start any activities or modification requests until final IACUC approval is received.

Submission Timeline

The time it takes to receive IACUC feedback on your submission depends on the completeness of the submission, the complexity of the research, and the volume of protocols already under review at the time your submission is received. The following are estimates only:
  • Protocols: ~5 weeks
  • Personnel Amendments: ~1 week
  • Amendments: ~2 weeks
  • Annual Updates: ~3 weeks
We recommend allowing ample time for IACUC review and responding promptly to IACUC feedback. Final approval is dependent on your timely and sufficient response to comments. Contact iacuc@ucsc.edu for questions or comments.
