17.7 Record of Academic Misconduct and/or Expulsion

Academic Misconduct

  1. First Offence: a first offence of academic misconduct, unless considered severe, will be recorded by the Office of the Registrar but not placed on the student's academic record.
  2. Second Offence: a second offence of academic misconduct may result in a notation of “Academic- Suspension” on the student's academic record and transcript.  This notation will be expunged from the student’s record and transcript upon graduation.
  3. Students who do not graduate from Humber may submit a request to the Registrar to have the record of the offence expunged no sooner than three (3) years after the date of the student’s last registration.


The record and notation of “Academic- Expulsion” is permanent, unless a petition to have the record expunged has been approved by the President. Students may submit a request to the Office of the Registrar to have a record of expulsion expunged from their academic record no sooner than five (5) years after the date of the expulsion.


Access to the record of academic misconduct will be limited to those involved in processing appeals and those involved in processing additional complaints against the student.
