As you've probably noticed, there are three types of retention status:
P (for Permanent-never destroy) I (for Indefinite-destroy only after certain circumstances are met) and a fixed term of years like 3, 5, etc. (for the number of years a record must be kept after its creation).
Before you make arrangements to store "Non-Permanent" records, make sure they are not due (or overdue!) to be destroyed. To determine this, find out when the records were created. Then check the Retention (Years) and Disposition columns in the The State University Model Records Retention Schedule to find out how long the records must be kept and what should be done with them after they are no longer needed, respectively. If the records are to be destroyed, go to Records Destruction. Otherwise, go to Transfer of Permanent Records.
