• The University General Records Retention Schedule is the primary source of retention requirements for the records created and received by the University of Washington
  • This schedule contains records common to most University offices 
  • Your office may also use a supplementary Departmental Schedule
  • This schedule is organized by sections, based on the function of the record
  • Records are expected to be destroyed/deleted or transferred to the UW Archives at the end of their legally-approved retention periods
