10.4 Records Retention

(Last Modified on July 20, 2009)

Records retention guidelines have been adopted by the Board of Regents to establish consistent records retention practices by USG institutions. The guidelines consist of a list of more than 400 types of records organized into twelve (12) categories and should be consulted to determine the minimum retention time for a particular type of record.

The University System Office administers the records retention guidelines and is the source for information concerning implementation of the guidelines. The Office of Legal Affairs shall approve all additions to, deletions from, and revisions of the records retention guidelines.
