Not all records have a retention time period, so review the retention schedules below for more in-depth information. SUNY Office of General Counsel and the NY Archives & Government Services designate the length of time a record is kept due to legal reasons. Holding onto records longer than necessary may cause a host of problems including: legal problems for the campus, storage problems and retrieval delays.
