New Visa Requirements For Europe 

Sending on behalf of Jacob Borenstein Program Analyst, Global Travel Safety and Security, Florida Atlantic University...

As we prepare for the upcoming fall semester and the increase of international travel, there are a few important updates to address. Starting January 1st, 2024, there will be new visa requirements for U.S. citizens traveling to Europe. 30 European countries have been included in the new guidelines and are expected to enforce these rules. We have identified that some of the countries which require visas are also the most traveled within the FAU community (France, Germany, Italy, and Spain are some of the countries). With that, may I kindly ask that you start updating your internal processes and make note of these changes. Also, if you can please inform your fellow colleagues in other departments of the coming changes as we wish to make it known throughout our community to avoid any issues in the future. I am also attaching some links for additional information and context.

Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions/concerns regarding this matter.

MYFAU is receiving a new look with updated features to better serve students, faculty and staff. The new site launches Monday, July 31. Visit the What’s New page to get a glimpse of the changes.

After signing into the new site, you will be presented with a dashboard that provides easy access to the most relevant sections, including FAU Self-Service, Canvas, Workday, FAU email, Money Matters, and more. These features will also be accessible from the top menu under My Resources.

The Today on Campus section will feature the most up-to-date information on things happening around the university.

In addition, faculty and staff can access the Faculty & Staff Lounge to quickly access work and teaching resources.

If you are experiencing problems with MYFAU or have any questions please submit a HelpDesk ticket for assistance.

Transition Week

August 28, 2023

 IRB Novelution Launch


Training materials including video tutorials and how-to-guides will become available on Monday, August 14th for researchers to become familiar with the submission platform.

Virtual training workshops will begin on Tuesday, August 15th at 10am via Zoom. At these workshops the HRPP team will provide an overview of the Novelution system including how to navigate the system, where to find templates and forms, how to submit, and answer any questions researchers have.

The last day to submit via IRBNet will be on Friday, August 18th. Any new projects or amendments must be submitted through IRBNet by this date before the transition period into Novelution begins. Note if the project is greater than minimal risk, a multi-year study, or you anticipate needing to submit amendments with updates soon after review, it is strongly recommended you wait to submit via Novelution for a seamless lifecycle of your project.

During the transition week the HRPP office and IRB will be working diligently to process all submissions that are pending in IRBNet as we transition into Novelution.

On August 28th all IRB projects must be submitted using the Novelution platform! More information will be provided in separate communications to those who have existing approved studies in IRBNet and how we will facilitate moving  those projects over into Novelution.
