Automated Determination Tools for Nonhuman and Exempt Research, and for non-medical Quality Improvement Projects


UF faculty, staff, and students may use the forms below to see if their research qualifies for an automatic determination of nonhuman research, exempt research, or non-medical quality improvement project status.  If your project meets the requirements, (1) our system will email a determination approval to the Principal Investigator and other contacts immediately after submitting the form; and (2) you do not need to submit your project to the IRB for review and approval.  Note:  you still need to comply with any other applicable requirements at UF.  For help, please contact
