This section explains the details of interim sanctions in the Student Conduct Process. For a complete overview of the Student Conduct Process go to Overview of the Student Conduct Process​.

In order to protect the health, safety, security and well-being of the University community and its members, the University reserves the right to immediately impose interim sanctions at any point during a Student Conduct Process. These interim sanctions could include, for example, a suspension.

In general, the University will impose an interim sanction if it determines that there is:

  1. An ongoing threat to an individual, including a complainant or referred student;
  2. An ongoing threat to property; or
  3. A risk of disruption of University business.

Interim sanctions may not be appealed.

In cases where interim sanctions are imposed, the University will take reasonable measures to ensure that a Student Conduct Process proceeds to a final determination as to whether or not there was a policy violation, and any final sanctions, within ten business days of the imposition of any interim sanctions. However, the University reserves the right to extend this time limit, in its sole discretion, in order to ensure proper review of all relevant material.

During the time that an interim sanction is in place, a student must abide by the requirements of the interim sanction.​
