Records Retention Schedule

The University of Miami produces and maintains several types of records, documents, and data, some of which you are probably familiar with. As a result, it is important to know the legal requirements for keeping these records, as determined by State, Federal, and University guidelines. Additionally, this information is key in addressing cost reduction initiatives across the University, and provides effective guidelines on when certain types of records can be disposed of.

The University has complied a comprehensive Records Retention Schedule to assist in these efforts. You can download the latest version below. If you don't see your department listed, or you believe that a particular type of record/document should be added, please forward that information to
