2.19 Retention of Student Records for Final Grades

Faculty members will retain student work not returned to the student (such as examinations, term papers, and other materials) for at least two semesters after the conclusion of a course. During this time students will have access to these materials should they ask for them.

Faculty may dispose of these records at the conclusion of that time period. All grades, including all those assigned during a semester as well as the final grade, should be recorded in a separate grade book which should be retained for a minimum of three years.
