The record retention schedule provides a mechanism to help ensure the university is maintaining necessary records for an appropriate length of time. This schedule is based on the retention practices of your departments as well as other legal, fiscal or historical requirements.
General policies, which reflect university philosophies regarding retention of records, were developed to guide a department when making record retention decisions. These policies are included in the front of the record retention schedule. We encourage you to become familiar with them.
OIT will update and reissue the schedule periodically as changes are warranted. Please notify OIT of necessary changes, additions, or deletions to the schedule as they occur by contacting Bryan Whitledge
