Types of Academic Incidents

Review the definitions, examples and case studies on the following pages.

An "Academic Incident" is a general term that encompasses all possible academic misconduct, including warnings and offences.

If a student receives a "Warning," an academic penalty will not be applied in the system.

If a student receives an "Offence," the faculty will apply an academic penalty, and it will be recorded in the system.

An academic incident (warning or offence) is filed to the system but not on their transcript.
