Nimz Career College is committed to taking all reasonable steps to ensure the students have the opportunity to successfully complete their programs. The College has a commitment to ensure that within this general framework that all students are treated fairly and equitably. 

Students who do not support the academic and ethical goals of the College for themselves and their fellow students may be subject to penalties, up to and including expulsion. 

In general, the College will attempt to resolve a situation without expulsion. Verbal warning, written warnings and suspension may precede this final and most serious of actions.  Where the College deems the integrity, safety or wellbeing of the College, students, staff, clients, visitors and other guests is in danger then expulsion may be applied at the College’s discretion at any point in the process. 

In conjunction with this policy, the college will have to ensure that students receive and are aware of its code of conduct, its academic policy, and its attendance policy.  The following outlines the conditions under which a student may be expelled with cause:

  1. Academic Dishonesty – students may be subject to expulsion at the discretion of the College for academic dishonesty. Academic dishonesty is any word, action or deed performed alone, or with others for the direct or indirect intention of providing an unfair advantage or benefit to self or other student(s) including:

         > Cheating
         > Plagiarism
         > Alteration of records
         > Bribery
         > Lying
         > Misrepresentation

  1. Outstanding Fees – failure to pay overdue accounts owing to the College within the specified time period may be grounds for expulsion after a written warning has been given.
  1. Code of Conduct – all students are required to adhere to the College’s published code of conduct. Where the violations do not have the potential to result in physical harm to persons or property the College may expel a student who has received suspension for failure to comply and has since violated any of the terms of the College’s code of conduct.  Students who are found under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol or carrying weapons will be subject to immediate expulsion.
  1. Harassment or Discrimination – the College does not condone harassment or discrimination of any student, staff, client or visitor to the College. Students participating in harassing or discriminatory activities that are racial, sexual, or pertaining to sexual orientation in nature may be subject to immediate suspension depending on the severity of the activity and pending investigation.   Expulsion is mandatory for any student who is deemed by the investigation to have engaged in harassing or discriminatory activities.  Any student, who is deemed by the investigation to have engaged in severe harassing or discriminatory activities, may be expelled at the discretion of the college, depending on the severity of the activity.  Racial harassment means bothering, threatening, or treating someone unfairly because of their race, colour, ancestry, birthplace, religious belief, ethnic background, citizenship, or language.
