§ 23.

Liability of students

  1. A student shall be answerable to the Rector, the Disciplinary Committee for Students or the Student Disciplinary Panel of the Warsaw University of Technology Student Self-Government for conduct involving dishonesty, demeaning the dignity of the student or contrary to the oath taken, and for any breach of the regulations in force at the Warsaw University of Technology, including the appropriation of the authorship of another person’s complete work or a part thereof.
  2. The decision to refer a case to the Disciplinary Prosecutor or the Student Disciplinary Panel shall be taken by the Rector. A request for the referral of a case to the Student Disciplinary Panel may be submitted to the Rector by the institutional student self-government body.
  3. Disciplinary penalties shall include:
    • caution,
    • reprimand,
    • reprimand with a warning,
    • suspension of certain student rights for a period of up to one year,
    • expulsion from the University.
  4. The Student Disciplinary Panel may impose the penalties referred to in sections 3 (a), (b) and (c) above, whereas the Disciplinary Committee may impose all types of penalties.
  5. For minor breaches, the Rector shall inflict the penalty of a caution, without referring to the Disciplinary Committee or the Student Disciplinary Panel, after a prior hearing with the defendant or his or her defence counsel. A student who has been punished or a student self-government body may lodge an appeal with the Disciplinary Committee for Students or the Student Disciplinary Panel within 14 days of the receipt of the penalty notice. In this case the Disciplinary Committee or the Student Disciplinary Panel may inflict only the penalty of a caution.
  6. A student may not be punished for the same act by both the Student Disciplinary Panel and the Disciplinary Committee.
  7. Detailed rules for disciplinary proceedings shall be laid down in separate regulations.
