    University Council of Student Conduct

    Every complaint made against a respondent will be handled seriously and a full investigation will be carried out before charges are made. If you believe that you are subject to complaints made without compelling evidence, you are free to take civil action against the complainant.

    UCSC investigate into incidents on behalf of SMU, and not on the behalf of complainants. Therefore, UCSC reserves the right to maintain confidentiality of the outcome and sanctions decisions, if accepted by the respondent, are final. Complainants who wish to seek personal liability claims against the respondent may do so through civil channels.

    UCSC only has jurisdiction over student matters. In the event that you feel unfairly or unjustly treated by a staff or faculty member, please report the matter to SMU Office of Human Resources or the Dean of the faculty member's School respectively.

    The University reserves the right to resolve a complaint according to the existing procedures, and complainants may not appeal the outcome of an investigation undertaken by the University. However, the complainant may make police reports, or other civil actions, as they see fit.

    For academic offences, you may appeal to the Dean of the academic course in question. The Dean's decision shall be final. For non-academic offences, you may reject the sanctions and attend a disciplinary hearing. After that hearing, you have one further chance to appeal against the decision. Please note that sanctions imposed after a disciplinary hearing where you are pronounced as responsible may be more severe depending on circumstances.

    For academic offences, you may appeal to the Dean of the academic course in question. The Dean's decision shall be final. For non-academic offences, you may reject the sanctions and attend a disciplinary hearing. After that hearing, you have one further chance to appeal to the Vice Provost against the decision. Please note that sanctions imposed after a disciplinary hearing where you are deemed responsible may be more severe, depending on circumstances.

    The current sanctions available are (in order of severity): Warning, Reprimand, Fine, Restitution, Disciplinary Probation, Withdrawal of Privileges, Corrective Work, Suspension, Indefinite Suspension and Expulsion. These sanctions are only recommendations put forth to the UCSC and Disciplinary Hearing Panel. The actual magnitude of the sanctions will be decided on the severity of the disciplinary violation.

    If you are sanctioned by UCSC, you shall be ineligible for Dean's List for at least one term. Furthermore, you might be ineligible for certain Awards or Scholarships in SMU. With the exception of suspension, your transcript will not reflect the sanction. The nature of the sanction and your offence shall only be known among the relevant staff of SMU (eg. UCSC, your School and Registrar).

    Depending on the circumstances, we might require the identity of the complainant in order to investigate the matter. However, the complainants' identity will be kept strictly confidential within UCSC. In the event of complaints made by a totally anonymous party, UCSC may reserve the right to close the complaint if investigations cannot proceed without identification.

However, the complainants' identity will be kept strictly confidential within UCSC. In the event of complaints made by a totally anonymous party, UCSC may reserve the right to close the complaint if investigations cannot be conducted therewith.

    If a complaint had been lodged against you for an alleged violation, you will be asked to meet with the Student Conduct Manager to discuss the incident. In the event that investigations have found you responsible for the violation, you will be issued with sanctions. These sanctions are geared towards your rehabilitation and attaining a better understanding of moral integrity and social responsibility.

These sanctions are geared towards your rehabilitation and attaining a better understanding of moral integrity and social responsibility.

    UCSC and SCD are independent bodies. The former is a University body that oversees the management and enforcement of student conduct and academic integrity. SCD is a representative student body that engages with the student population to promote CIRCLE Values, good moral values and academic honesty. Members of the SCD also act as jury members on the disciplinary hearing to represent the student voice. However, UCSC and SCD do work together to promote moral excellence among SMU students.

    UCSC only has jurisdiction over student matters. In the event that you feel unfairly or unjustly treated by a staff or faculty member, please report the matter to SMU Office of Human Resources or the Dean of the faculty member's School respectively.

    There is no hard and fast rule about whether a certain action is subjected to disciplinary actions. If the action violates any Act under the Singapore Law, Code of Student CONDUCT or the Code of Academic Integrity, then it's highly likely that the action will be subject to disciplinary actions. Other actions will be decided on a case-by-case basis. If you wish to clarify if your complaint amounts to a violation of the Code of Student Conduct or Academic Integrity, you may email to scd@smu.edu.sg for enquiries.

    Some Scholarship programmes require the recipient to be free of disciplinary records and may rescind the award in the event of a conduct violation. Disciplinary action does not affect Exchange or Internship opportunities.

    No. However, it might affect your application for Awards or Scholarship where you are required to declare if you had been the subject of disciplinary action.

    Each and every SMU student is a responsible adult and should be held fully responsible for his/her actions. Following Singapore's law, the school will not inform the parents unless he/she is a minor (under 21 years old) or assessed to be at risk of self-harm.

    ll disciplinary records are kept private and confidential by the University. The information will not be divulged, except to authorized individuals or when compelled by law to do so.

    It is in the interest of the offender, and the general student population, that you report this matter to the UCSC. The matter will then be investigated. Please note that UCSC reserves the right to uphold the confidentiality of the final outcome.

Other actions will be decided on a case-by-case basis.

    Every complaint made against a respondent will be handled seriously and a full investigation will be carried out before charges are made. We believe that the respondent is "innocent until proven guilty" and if you believe that sanctions are made without compelling evidence that rules have been breached, you are free to bring the case up to a higher level of authority. Please refer to the Disciplinary Procedures.

    The current sanctions available are (in order of severity): Warning, Reprimand, Fine, Restitution, Disciplinary Probation, Withdrawal of Privileges, Suspension, Indefinite Suspension and Expulsion. These sanctions are only recommendations put forth to the UCSC and Disciplinary Hearing Panel and the actual magnitude of the sanctions will be decided on the severity of the disciplinary violation.

    The Disciplinary Hearing Panel is selected by the Disciplinary Hearing Officer and it will comprise of members of the faculty, as well as council members from Student Council of Discipline (SCD). These pre-selected members of the faculty and students available for selection have been selected for their esteemed standing within the SMU Community and they're expected to carry out the disciplinary hearing in a fair and just manner.

    SCD has no executive power or authority to enforce the disciplinary regime in SMU. The discipline regime is under the auspices of the University of Student Conduct (UCSC), whom Dean of Students Office is currently covering. Our roles are purely educational and advisory. Our main purpose is to provide a feedback channel for students on academic as well as non-academic disciplinary issues. We hope to achieve this through close interaction with students.If you have any doubts or grievances that you may wish to clarify, please feel free to approach any SCD council members.

    We believe that each and every SMU student is a responsible adult and should be held fully responsible for his/her actions. Following Singapore's law, the school will not inform the parents unless he/she is a minor (under 21 years old) and when a disciplinary hearing is convened.

    Emails and queries made to SCD are fully confidential. Our email account is only accessible by the council members. No faculty or staff members have access to the email account. The council members understand the importance of trust and we understand that any breach of confidentiality will result in the failure of this feedback system between the SCD and fellow SMU students. In normal cases, we would not refer the matter to UCSC without seeking your permission. However, in the event of clear and imminent danger to life or property, we will have to refer the matter immediately to UCSC for intervention. Please note that UCSC does require disclosure of your identity before they can actively investigate into your complaint
