Record Retention Policies
In 2010, SUNY issued new regulations regarding records retention. This policy revision is the first since 1977, and is intended, in part, to address the storage and retention of electronic records.
NYS and SUNY require all campuses to adhere to these record retention policies, and plan to conduct random audits to ensure each campus is compliant. These policies cover all records stored in any format (paper and electronic).
In addition, the College is now required to submit annual verification confirming the appropriate retention and destruction of records by all departments.
