The University Board on Student Discipline (UBSD) provides an impartial forum in which there will be a complete examination of allegations of academic dishonesty or misconduct on the part of students. The Tribunal will provide individuals with an opportunity to respond in a timely manner to allegations of academic dishonesty or misconduct and, if appropriate, will recommend a course of action to the President, or to the Vice-President, Academic if the President has already played a role in the case.

Policies on Student Conduct and Discipline

UBSD Policy

When the University imposes a penalty on a student for academic dishonesty or misconduct and the student wishes to dispute the facts, the student may appeal to the University Board on Student Discipline (UBSD).

UBSD Student Appeal Application

Students are advised to consult with the Ombudsperson. The Office of the Ombudsperson is an independent, impartial and confidential resource for students and other members of the University community. The Ombudsperson provides information and guidance on students’ rights and responsibilities, as well as University regulations, policies and procedures.

All members of the University community share the responsibility for the academic standards and reputation of the University. Academic integrity is a cornerstone of the development and acquisition of knowledge.
