Statutory Requirement for Records Retention

As a public agency, defined by KRS 61.870, Murray State University is required by law to establish a comprehensive records management program (KRS 171.680). Public records are defined in KRS 61.870 as documentary materials in all physical formats which are "prepared, owned, used, in the possession of or retained by a public agency."

Records Retention Schedule

The following link provides access to Kentucky's official Records Retention Schedule for Universities. I have provided a table of contents below to aid in locating the section needed.

In each section of the Records Retention Schedule, you will find the titles of different kinds of records, a description of those records, and the retention and disposition requirements for them.
