The purpose of having an established student disciplinary procedure is to provide a fair and effective mechanism for investigating and resolving disputes involving students and alleged violations by students of the university’s rules and regulations.
- Any member of the university committee (trustees, faculty, staff or registered students) may bring a complaint about student conduct or academic integrity.
- UCSC gives written notice of the complaint and its allegations to the students alleged to have violated University rules.
- If the UCSC determines the complaint to have been maliciously made, the complainant shall be dealt with in accordance with the University’s policies.
- The role of SCD is to help students to understand disciplinary process, respect and comply with provisions of the Student Disciplinary Procedure and deal with all aspects of the process.
- Please read the SMU Student Disciplinary Procedure for more information on the conduct and recommendations of Hearings.
- Possible sanctions resulting from misconduct:
- Grade Penalties (for academic misconduct),
- Disciplinary Probation,
- Corrective Service Programme,
- Withdrawal of Privileges,
- Suspension, Indefinite Suspension and Expulsion.
