Record Retention

    University General Records Retention Schedule

    The University General Records Retention Schedule identifies and describes records created or received by an office and provides instruction on how long to keep those records. The General Records Retention Schedule is a legal document that acts as an insurance policy designed to protect both the University and your office legally and fiscally.

    By routinely following the General Schedule you assure the credibility and soundness of your records maintenance procedures in the event of audit or litigation. More practically, disposing of records according to schedule promotes and increases office efficiency by saving time, space, and money spent on storage and staffing.
