Key control policy for employees departing the university

All keys shall be returned to Department Heads so they can tape that key to their gold (copy four) of the Key Request. That should then be returned to Key Control. All key records must be cleared before final clearance from the university can be completed. In the event that the key or keys are not returned to the department, the Dean, Department Head, or chair shall take further action to see that the keys are returned.
