Grading records shall be retained by the instructor assigning the grade therein or by the instructor's department/division chair or school director for one year after assignment of the final grade.

At the discretion of the instructor who administered them, final examination papers may be returned at any time to the individual students who wrote the papers for their study and retention. However, if the examination papers are not returned to the students, they shall be retained by the instructor or by the instructor's department/division chair or school director for a period of one year after completion of the class in which they are administered.
