University of Calgary Calendar 2010-2011 Academic Regulations K. Student Misconduct K.2 Plagiarism/Cheating/Other Academic Misconduct K.2.2 Penalties
K.2.2 Penalties

1. Failing Grade - A student may be given a failing grade in either an exercise or course in which that student is found guilty of plagiarism, cheating or other academic misconduct. Except in circumstances in which leniency is warranted, this penalty will only be applied in conjunction with one or other of the other penalties mentioned in this section. In situations in which a student is registered in a faculty other than that in which the course is given, this is the only penalty which shall be applied by the host faculty. A student may not avoid a failing grade by withdrawing from the course.

2. Disciplinary Probation - When a student is placed on disciplinary probation, he or she is entitled to proceed with a degree or other academic program, but only on condition that the registration will be forfeited and the student suspended or expelled, if he or she is found guilty of a further academic offence. A student who is placed on disciplinary probation is eligible to continue in the faculty in the normal way after the satisfactory completion of his or her probationary period. This penalty shall be applied by the faculty in which the student is registered at the time of the offence.

3. Suspension - Suspension takes place when a student is denied registration within a degree or other academic program for a specified period of time. A student who has been placed under suspension is conditionally eligible to reapply for admission or registration at either the end of a specified period of time or thereafter. Suspension does not imply automatic readmission; a student must satisfy the dean and/or the faculty concerned of his/her eligibility for readmission. This penalty shall be applied by the faculty in which the student is registered at the time of the offence.

4. Expulsion - A student who is expelled from a faculty is dismissed permanently from the faculty with no right to apply for readmission to that faculty. This penalty shall be applied by the faculty in which the student is registered at the time of the offence.

5. Effects of Suspension or Expulsion from a Faculty - A student suspended or expelled from a faculty normally may not apply or be considered for readmission to the University in another faculty, until at least twelve months after the end of the session in which the academic offence takes place.

6. Expulsion from the University - If, upon suspending or expelling a student from a faculty, the dean and/or faculty determine that the severe sanction of expulsion from the University is warranted, such a recommendation may be made to the Vice-President (Academic), who may act to expel the student from the University.
