Key Documents

Code of Behaviour on Academic Matters

The Code of Behaviour on Academic Matters spells out offenses, procedures in cases involving students and faculty members, as well as appeals. You will also find information relevant to sanctions, Divisional procedures and Tribunal procedures related to cases of academic discipline/misconduct.

Rules of Practice and Procedure

Due to the limitations caused by the pandemic, the University Tribunal's Rules of Practice and Procedure (Rules) have been amended. Electronic hearings are now the default method of hearing before the University Tribunal. For more details, please read Part 8 of the Rules carefully.

The interim amendments take into account the need for timely administration of justice during a pandemic and the need to create efficiencies for all stakeholders. For example, parties will no longer have to request an electronic hearing, Chairs will no longer be required to issue directions relating to such requests, and the ADFG Office will process and schedule Tribunal cases more expeditiously.

Parties who wish to proceed in-person can still request an oral hearing under the Rules.

The amendments will be in effect until December 31, 2021, and thereafter until the Senior Chair issues a 30-days’ notice indicating they no longer apply. They will apply to cases for which a notice of hearing is issued after July 16, 2021, and until the Rules no longer apply. The ADFG Office will update the website and issue a new communication when they no longer apply.

Policy on Official Correspondence with Students

The Policy on Official Correspondence with Students outlines requirements of all students receiving official correspondence from the University, to maintain a current postal and email address on the University's student information system (ROSI), and to monitor those addresses on a regular basis. Failure to maintain or monitor is not an excuse for failing to receive official correspondence from the University, and in the case of the Tribunal or Discipline Appeals Board, may result in a hearing proceeding in the student's absence.
