Data Retention

Welcome to EMU's Data Retention homepage. Here the University shares its general data retention schedules, and corresponding custodians, for certain types of data that commonly receive public interest. The schedules are divided into seven categories:

  1. Administrative
  2. Business and Finance
  3. Health and Counseling
  4. Human Resources
  5. Law Enforcement
  6. Student
  7. Other

These schedules do not represent every type of data collected or stored by the University, nor do the schedules represent a University-wide directive. Some departments have unique data retention responsibilities that may change or take precedence over these general university practices, for a variety of reasons. These schedules should be viewed as general guidelines only.

The University's Data Retention Administrative Policy is also housed on this page, and can be found by clicking on the corresponding link to the left.

As a reminder, any request for university documents should be made via the EMU's Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) process.
