Updates to the Student Code of Academic Conduct

Recently, June 3rd, Senate met to discuss a number of Policy 60 ammendements which will come into effect this September 2014. Stay tuned Students!  

Ryerson Today has an update with more information.



Effective immediately, if a student has been found to have committed academic misconduct, a disciplinary notice (DN) will be placed on their academic record only. Senate voted to remove the DN from a student’s official transcript.

In October, Senate will name a new committee consisting of students, faculty and staff involved in applying the policy to undertake extensive community consultation as part of the review of Policy 60.

We are currently in the process of updating the Academic Integrity website to reflect this change.

If you have any questions, please contact

Information current as of July 5, 2013.


“Imagine that you were about to get surgery and just as you were going under, you discovered that your surgeon had cheated throughout their university career. Would you feel betrayed? What if it was your lawyer? Your accountant? Your child's teacher?”  (taken from the University of Alberta guide to plagiarism).
