Any student or staff member at the University can report student misconduct.
To make a complaint of misconduct, you will need to provide a written account of the instance(s) of misconduct and any relevant supporting material. This needs to be submitted to the Registrar, via the Student Affairs Unit.
Once the Registrar receives a complaint of misconduct, they will determine whether it should be referred for an investigation.
If a complaint is made against you and needs to be investigated, we will contact you to advise that an investigation is being undertaken and request you attend an interview.
Once an investigation has been completed, a finding is made on the allegation(s). This means deciding on whether you have engaged in misconduct or not.
If you are found to have engaged in misconduct, one or more penalities may be applied. The penalties available under the University of Sydney (Student Discipline) Rule 2016 (pdf, 162KB) are set out in clause 3.1.
If you are not found to have engaged in misconduct, you may receive a warning or no other action may be taken.
