Student conduct

Mount Allison is a close-knit community of learners where respectful living and inquiry are valued and upheld. The University uses policies to set forth its expectations for acceptable student conduct in both academic and non-academic matters.

Other policies that speak specifically to student conduct in other areas that overlap with the Student Code of Conduct:

View all University policies and procedures.

Where standards are not met — and the rights, safety, and dignity of students are infringed upon — University policies are employed to provide a framework for review, sanction, and resolution. As an institution of higher learning, Mount Allison desires for educative outcomes that promote personal accountability and restoration of/within the community. Where this is not possible or appropriate, more directed and sometimes punitive measures are applied.

In all things, administration of these policies seeks to be clear, fair, and timely. To this end, the information on this page is designed to help students understand and navigate the various policies that apply to their conduct in and out of the classroom.


Students are accountable under the Student Code of Conduct for their behaviour on University premises, when acting as University delegates or designated representatives away from campus, and during their participation in off-campus trips and events that are organized or sanctioned by the University.

For complaints against students under the Student Code of Conduct or the Residence Life Code of Conduct, fill out the Code of Conduct Complaint Form.

Complaints must normally be submitted within 30 days of the incident in question. Anonymous complaints will not be processed. The Director of Student Life will normally respond to complaints within 10 calendar days of the complaint's submission.

Any member of the University community (e.g. student, staff, faculty) may bring a complaint against a student. For questions, please contact
