The AU Student Code of Conduct : Current Student Program

There are three important polices at AU that govern the conduct of a student:

  • The Academic Misconduct Policy is intended to guide your conduct as it relates to your academic endeavors. The policy was established to reinforce the principles of academic honesty and academic integrity.
  • The Non-Academic Misconduct Policy is intended to guide your conduct in your relations with the University. You are required to behave in a respectful manner toward staff, university property, and the law.
  • The Student Appeals Policy sets out the principles and procedures to follow when you are making an appeal to the University. The policy ensures that there is a fair and equitable relationship between you and the University.

You should completely familiarize yourself with these policies to ensure that you have a successful experience in your academic and non-academic pursuits with AU.
