UNC General Records Retention Schedule

The University Archives assists UNC employees with records management. We provide training and consultations about state and university policies regarding the retention and disposition of official records, and we work with the State Archives to maintain and update the UNC-Chapel Hill General Records Retention and Disposition Schedule.

The General Records Retention and Disposition Schedule is a tool for employees of The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the University of North Carolina General Administration to use when managing the records of the University.  It lists records found in the administrative, academic, and health affairs units of the University and provides instructions on how long they need to be retained for legal, fiscal, and historical purposes.

It supersedes all previous records retention and disposition schedules that may have been created for individual units; and serves all administrative, academic, and health affairs units of the University.
