Retention Rationale
Vital Records

This schedule applies to official records. Convenience or duplicate copies of official records are considered transitory and should not be kept longer than necessary, and in no event longer than the official copy.

University Records exist in both physical and electronic formats, such as paper, email or data in a database. Paper records may or may not contain information that is duplicated in an electronic system. For technical reasons the retention assigned to the electronic records may be different from the retention of physical records. If there are differences, see instructions in this schedule for details.
