3. Disciplinary Measures

Academic misconduct often results in a one-year suspension from the University and a notation of academic discipline on the student's record. However, disciplinary measures which may be imposed, singly or in combination, for academic misconduct include, but are not limited to the following:

  1. a letter of reprimand
  2. a failing grade or mark of zero on the assignment or in the course in which the academic misconduct occurred
  3. suspension, cancellation, or forfeiture of any scholarships, bursaries or prizes
  4. suspension from the University for a specified period of time1
  5. expulsion from the University
  6. denial of admission or re-admission to the University for a specified or indefinite period of time
  7. a notation of academic discipline on the student's record in the Student Information System, which will appear on the student's Transcript of Academic Record
  8. revocation of a degree or other academic credentials dishonestly or improperly obtained

The laying of criminal charges or the commencement of civil proceedings does not preclude the University from commencing disciplinary proceedings or taking disciplinary measures against a student who has committed academic misconduct.

1During the period of suspension, a student may not participate in activities of the University, including but not limited to attending or auditing classes. Students will not receive credit for courses taken at another institution during a suspension.
