Student Community Standards (SCS) - Record Management

 

Record management in SCS ensures that institutional records are created and maintained according to established guidelines and legislation.

SCS is devoted to confidential management of all conduct records. All files are electronically scanned and saved to the SCS confidential hard drive. Access to the hard drive is strictly monitored.

Electronic files are available for retrieval by personnel in the SCS to determine whether students have multiple incidents over the course of their educational career at MRU.

Student Conduct files are retained electronically in SCS. Once a student conduct file has been scanned and entered into the conduct database, the hard copy file is shredded.
