Students violating community standards may be held accountable through the student conduct process. For a complete description of the College’s student conduct process, please see the section on Student Conduct Policies and Procedures.
Conduct expectations are outlined under the following policies:
Academic misconduct is defined as a violation of the College’s standards of academic integrity whether these violations are intentional or unintentional. Academic misconduct consists of cheating on an exam, plagiarism on an academic assignment, or unauthorized collaborative work.
Evidence of academic misconduct may include, but is not limited to, the following:
- Some of the student’s work coincides with or closely paraphrases a source that is not properly acknowledged.
- Glaring coincidences in the work of students on exams, papers, problem sets, etc., where cooperation in producing the work was not permitted.
- Submission of the same work in more than one course. When submitting any work to an instructor for a course, it is assumed that the work was produced specifically for that course. Submission of the same work in more than one course without prior approval is prohibited.
- Not taking part in internal examination conducted by the college may result in non-acceptance of university examination from by the college (in case of a medical emergency proper document supporting the claim has to be submitted in order to get a relaxation from this rule)
Sources that must be acknowledged include, but are not limited to, lab manuals, books, articles in books, journal articles, and web pages, along with graphs, charts, tables, data sets, etc., in any of the sources just mentioned. Proper acknowledgment must indicate both the source and how it served as a source for any specific portions of the student’s assignment.
The informal nature of some writing may obviate the necessity of rigorously formal citation, but still requires honest attribution to original authors of all borrowed materials. Students should feel free to consult with instructors whenever there is doubt as to proper documentation.
Alcohol and Other Drugs

The unlawful possession, use, purchase, or distribution of illicit drugs, controlled substances (including stimulants, depressants, narcotics, or hallucinogenic drugs), or paraphernalia—or the misuse of prescription drugs, including sharing, procuring, buying, or using in a manner different from the prescribed use, or by someone other than the person for whom it was prescribed—is prohibited on College property or as part of any College activity & any student found indulged in such activity can be terminated after form the college by the disciplinary committee.

The Head of disciplinary committee, in consultation with the Management Committee, will review the conduct and the circumstances in which it occurred and decide whether it falls under a minor or major adjudication. The more reckless the conduct and the greater the risk of serious bodily harm and/or the greater the actual bodily harm caused, the greater the likelihood of a severe sanction such as expulsion from the college.
Bullying, Intimidation, and Stalking
Bullying. Bullying includes any electronic, written, verbal, or physical act or a series of acts of physical, social, or emotional domination that is intended to cause or any reasonable person should know would cause physical or substantial emotional harm to another person or group.

(ii) creating a threatening or intimidating environment;
(iii) substantially disrupting the orderly operation of the College; or
(iv) unreasonable actions directed towards an individual (or a group) resulting in intimidating, degrading, humiliating, or undermining behaviour that creates a risk to the health or safety of individuals.
Bullying is prohibited, and participating in such acts will result in disciplinary action which may also include expulsion from the college.
Intimidation. Intimidation is any verbal, written, or electronic threats of violence or other threatening behaviour directed toward another person or group that reasonably leads the person(s) in the group to fear for their physical well-being.

When acts of bullying, intimidation, or stalking occur in the context of intimate-partner violence or when the behaviour is perpetrated on the basis of sex or gender, the conduct will be resolved under the Sexual Assault and Harassment Policy.
Discrimination, Including Harassment, Based On A Protected Class
Discrimination, including harassment, based on a protected class is defined as unreasonable, unwelcome conduct, based on an individual’s sex, race, colour, age, religion, national or ethnic origin, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, pregnancy, marital status, medical condition, veteran status, disability, or any other legally protected classification, that objectively and subjectively harms the person by severely, persistently, and/or pervasively denies the person equal access to educational opportunities, residence and community life, or terms and conditions of employment. This type of discrimination can occur in any form and can be directed at individuals or groups. Depending on the severity of the circumstances, infractions may be resolved through a variety of appropriate methods, ranging from informal, remedial steps, including training, counselling, or mediation to disciplinary action, up to and including suspension or expulsion. In all cases, the College encourages individuals to seek support and assistance as soon as possible. Before any behaviour can be considered for the student conduct process, it must be clear that no substantial free expression interests are threatened by bringing a formal charge of discrimination. If a person has been subject to discrimination including harassment on the basis of a protected classification, as described above, the student should consult with the director of equal opportunity and engagement for guidance.
