Records Retention Schedules serve as the primary guidelines for the retention of records created or received by Connecticut College and its community of staff, faculty, and students. These schedules are guidelines; they articulate minimum retention requirements. If an office actually uses particular records beyond their minimum retention requirements, the retention schedule can be adjusted as necessary.

There are two types of retention schedules, general and department specific, listed below. You must be logged into your CamelWeb account in order to access the documents.

General Records Retention Schedules

These provide information on the creation, ownership, retention, and disposition of records common to most departments and offices at Connecticut College. Each schedule identifies: who creates or holds the records, how long those records should be kept, and what should ultimately be done with those records.

Administrative records
Academic records
Student records
Financial records
Employment records
Facilities records
Legal records
Marketing and Promotion records

Department Retention Schedules

These schedules supplement the general schedules and provide guidance on retention and disposition of department- and office-specific records.

 All record types kept by all offices may not be listed in these schedules. If there is a question concerning legal retention periods for an unlisted record type, please contact the College Archivist for guidance. Offices may be referred to the College attorney as necessary.
