Exempt Research

Exempt research is defined by 45 CFR #46.101(b)(1-6). The study must be minimal risk and fall into one of the 6 categories listed. A series of decision charts can be found on the HHS website to help you determine if your research qualifies for exempt status. In addition, the application form below includes a checklist to help guide you.

Investigators may request that an activity be classified as exempt from IRB oversight, but the final determination will be made by the ORSP/IRB Office.

Please complete the forms below and any other requested items and submit to orsp@acu.edu per the submission instructions.
