Class Records, Papers, and Examinations

The Senate Rule entitled Student Relations states that instructors "[m]ake available to students all papers, quizzes and examinations within a reasonable period of time. (Students and instructors may contact the UK Office of eLearning for advice about sharing student records remotely and securely.) If any of the records mentioned above are not returned to the students, they shall be retained by the instructor until 180 days subsequent to the conclusion of the academic term in which the problem occurred. In addition, student records and grading policy procedures including roll books, syllabi and attendance records (if applicable)--or copies of this information--shall be on file with the instructor or the department office whenever the instructor will no longer be available."

For further information regarding retention of records, please contact Ginny Daley (257-5257 or
