Record Maintenance

Per Board of Regents standards, Georgia Tech will maintain the following:

  • Disciplinary records of students found responsible of any charges will be retained for five (5) years after graduation or date of last attendance
  • Disciplinary records containing records of “Suspension” or “Expulsion” will be permanently retained.
  • Disciplinary records of students found not responsible of any charges are voided

Reporting / Release of Information

Guidelines for what information is provided to third parties:

  • Any case resulting in expulsion is released to third parties indefinitely
  • Academic misconduct resulting in suspension is released to third parties for five years after sanction completion
  • Non-academic misconduct resulting in suspension
    • No threat to the community is identified: Released to third parties until sanction is completed
    • Potential threat to the campus community: Released to third parties for five years after sanction completion
  • Any case that did not result in suspension or expulsion is NOT released to third parties

A specific written request from the student is required by the Institute to release the entire disciplinary record to third parties
