Records disposition

Disposition means disposal of records no longer needed for day-to-day operations by a unit, through destruction, secure destruction, or transfer to the University Archives. 

Only the records of the primary office will be transferred to the Archives. If you think you have records that should be transferred to the Archives, but are not the primary office, please contact us at .

Primary offices require approval before their records can be disposed of. That approval is gained through the use of the disposition forms.

Offices that are not the primary office do not require approval to destroy the records but must retain them according to the retention rules established in the Directory of Records (DOR).
