University Fees

It is the policy of the University of Miami to assess fees for specific types of research protocols. The University has two categories of fees:

  1. Research Compliance Fee – Will be applicable to all studies supported by for-profit sponsors and/or agencies/foundations that do not otherwise cover IRB fees through federal indirect costs to the institution. This fee of $350 is charged to new protocols only. This fee will be collected through a journal entry using sub code 4205.
  2. HSRO Processing Fee – Will be applicable to all studies supported by for-profit sponsors and/or agencies/foundations that do not otherwise cover IRB fees through federal indirect costs to the institution.

All applicable submissions subject to the fee schedule will require the completion of the HSRO/IRB Processing Fee Payment section in the eProst application. The account information provided in the payment section along with the required approvals which are provided by submitting the protocol online, will be utilized by the HSRO to process payment accordingly. If a sponsored account has not been established prior to the submission, the appropriate account to be used for payment is the corresponding Departmental IRB account number.
