Policies

Which policies apply to you? 

As a Queen’s student, you may belong to several communities on campus. For example, you may be a graduate student who plays intramurals; you may be an undergraduate student-athlete living in residence, etc.  See below for more information on which Non-Academic Misconduct (NAM) policies apply to each specific community.
