In circumstances where the reasons for decision are not provided at the time of the hearing, written reasons for decision will be issued at a later date, normally within 90 days, although the reasons may be issued sooner, and in rare occasions may take longer.

The process of issuing a decision is as follows. Once the ADFG Office receives the draft decision from the Panel, the Office will format it; conduct a fact and name check; circulate it to the Panel again for their approval (only if there are any changes), and, finally, the Office will release the decision to you and the Division. It will be posted online to the ADFG website (it will not contain your name) because academic discipline decisions are public. The case and the decision will then be reported to the Academic Board.  The case will also be summarized in the case summaries section of the ADFG website.

ADFG Office

Tribunal decisions are reported to the Provost and are generally published with the Student's name withheld. Decisions from 1975/1976 to 1999/2000 are here.  Decisions from 2000/2001 to the present are here.  Summaries of all decisions can be found here.  Sanctions imposed by the Tribunal on the Student, may also be published on the Repository of Student Information (ROSI).


The Provost's Office will receive notification of the Decision at the same time as the Student.


The Division will also be notified of the Decision, and it will make note of any sanctions ordered by the Panel on the Student's transcript and academic record, such as reprimands, suspensions, disciplinary notations, confirmed expulsions, changes to course marks, etc.

Academic Board

Summaries of all decisions are reported semi-annually to the Academic Board, a sub-committee of the Governing Council.

You will be notified of the outcome of your hearing and the appeal deadline in writing within a few business days of the determination by the Panel, which may occur at the hearing or may be reserved until later. You will be given 21 calendar days from the date of the Decision (which may be communicated in the form of an Order) to file an appeal. For more information on how to file an appeal, see How to File an Appeal.

Yes, the Provost can appeal a decision of the Tribunal panel, if:

  • The Student has been acquitted and the Provost believes that there is a basis for appealing a question which is not one of fact alone; or,
  • The Provost disagrees with the sanction.
