Guidelines for Common Non-Academic Misconduct Outcomes

The guidelines below provide a list of ‘common’ penalties or outcomes for breaches of the Policy on Non-Academic Misconduct. A ‘common penalty’ is defined as an outcome or penalty that is typically assessed or what is considered the “standard” for the offence.  However, a variety of factors are considered when assessing the appropriate outcome in order to i) mitigate risk and attend the needs and security of the U of G community, ii) respond to impact(s) experienced by an individual or community and iii) encourage student learning and development following an occurrence of non- academic misconduct.

Typically, all breaches of the Policy on Non-Academic Misconduct (including Notices of Offence) will be associated with a mandatory period of Non-Academic Probation for the present and next registered semester.  In addition, one or more outcomes/penalties listed below may be assigned. 

Alleged breaches of the Policy on Non-Academic Misconduct that arise within a University residence area will proceed under the authority of the University and in accordance with the Residence Community Living Standards.  For alleged breaches outside a residence area, the University Judicial Committee will determine an outcome.

In the case where a student has had previous offences or incidents of non-academic misconduct, the common penalties may not be applied as penalties are normally progressive.
