As a student at the University, you are expected to behave in an appropriate and respectful way. If you engage in behaviour that isn’t acceptable, this is considered misconduct.
Behaviour that is considered misconduct is outlined in Chapter 8 of the University of Sydney By-law 1999 (as amended). This includes if you:
If your actions relate to academic matters such as plagiarism or cheating, this is considered academic dishonesty. This situation is managed through our academic dishonesty procedure.
Before you lodge an allegation of misconduct or respond to an allegation of misconduct against you, you can get advice and support from one of the independent student advocacy services.
