As the school year winds down, here is your official reminder regarding the University’s Records Retention Policy. This guide helps you figure out what to keep and for how long when it comes to student records (including papers, quizzes and tests).
See the policy here https://library.osu.edu/sites/default/files/2022-03/osu-general-schedule-20220322-compressed3.pdf
Student records information is found on page 32 – 36.
A terminology guide is near the beginning of the document. For example CR+1 stands for creation date plus year. That means you should destroy the document one year after it was created, such as a student paper, quiz or test.
You are welcome to contact me if you have questions about records retention.
