For other copies retained in Faculties: Ontario Council on Graduate Studies (OCGS) requires statistics on how long students take to complete their degree; therefore, the information kept on file after a student graduates should assist in providing these statistics for every student in the program. The quality review cycle is 7 years; FGS recommends retaining student records for 10 years.
The basis for admission, academic history, academic awards and honours, academic discipline (when noted on transcript), degree award status and date of conferral must be retained permanently. If records other than the above have been maintained as part of the student record, weed from the file seven years after last active session.
