Records Retention

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly versionSend by emailSend by email

If you think you have too much paper around your office, you're probably right. Many academic departments and programs keep more paper than they need to -- either because they are not required to retain certain records, or because the University Records Office is actually already retaining those records if they must be kept.

For guidance on how long certain classes of records must be kept, you can consult the University's records retention schedule online. For more detailed questions, you can contact University Archives staff.
