An Academic Integrity Breach is an action that does not demonstrate Academic Integrity and includes any behaviour that does not allow the College to fairly evaluate a student’s knowledge, skills and abilities in relation to admissions, assigned course work or assessment.
An Academic Integrity Breach can occur during activities related to the admissions process, receiving academic credentials or representing academic accomplishments, or any other academic activity or as defined in Policy S4- Academic Integrity, as amended from time to time.
Non-Academic Misconduct or Breach refers to actions that are contrary to the College’s behavioural expectations for Students, including the non-academic responsibilities of Students set out in Policy S1- Student Code of Rights and Responsibilities.

There are two different types of appeals associated with appeals of Academic Integrity Breaches & Non-Academic Misconduct or Breaches:
Appeals for disciplinary actions issued as a result of incidences of academic integrity breach are only available where the sanctions imposed is disproportionate to or inconsistent with the nature of the offence.
If the answer to any of the above questions is “yes”, you may have grounds for making a disciplinary action appeal. If you are simply unhappy with the discipline handed down, you likely would not have grounds for a disciplinary action appeal.
The Appeal must be made in writing in by filling out the applicable appeal form. Details provided by the Student must include but are not limited to:
The Appeal form must be submitted within 5 working days of notification of the decision at issue.
