Student Code of Conduct

 Code of Conduct banner

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

The Student Code of Conduct outlines behaviour 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 information about academic conduct, click 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.
