Student Conduct Record Retention

Student Conduct Records are retained for a period of 7 years and may be kept longer due to special circumstances such as suspension or expulsion, cases resolved via formal hearing, unresolved cases, or as deemed necessary by the Director for Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution. (Note: a procedural update occurred in Summer 2018, previous practice was five years after graduation or date of last attendance).

Students may submit a petition to have a student conduct record expunged early. The petition to expunge a record is a courtesy provided by University of Minnesota-Duluth and is not a requirement of law. UMD has no obligation to expunge a student's conduct record.
