Student Code of Conduct





Memorial's Student Code of Conduct


Memorial University’s Student Code of Conduct reflects the expectation that students will conduct themselves in compliance with university regulations and policies, departmental policies, and federal, provincial and municipal laws, as well as codes of ethics that govern students who are members of regulated professions.

The Code outlines behavior which the university considers to be non-academic misconduct offences, and the range of remedies and/or penalties which may be imposed. Academic misconduct is governed by the Memorial University Calendar and other university policies. For more information about the Code, please visit here. For information about academic conduct, please visit here.

The University recognizes that many concerns can be resolved informally, without resorting to the provisions of this Code. The principles underlying this Code are educational and whenever appropriate the University encourages informal resolution of minor incidents. Informal procedures will include consulting with the parties involved and attempting to mediate a satisfactory resolution. The focus will be on restorative justice. The Code also provides for early intervention regarding behavior that may be of concern, without involving the formal procedures under the Code.
