Ohio Academic Misconduct Advisor

Throughout your educational career, you've probably sat through many lectures about “doing the right thing” when it comes to completing your school work and respecting the work of others. It isn't long before you're taught that cheating is one of the most reprehensible crime you could commit inside the classroom. But in hindsight, the consequences for being academically dishonest weren't as harsh as teachers made them seem. At worst, you'd get a bad grade on the assignment, written up, detention, or your parents would be called. All repercussions that you could recover from rather quickly.

But in the world of higher education, academic integrity is everything. Academia is a trust-based system in which people depend on each other to learn and contribute in an honest way. Without integrity, people in the learning environment will not thrive. This is why higher education institutions implement rules to protect and maintain integrity within their schools. If students fail to comply with these rules, the consequences are much more serious than those imposed in earlier education levels. A violation of academic misconduct will not only affect a student's college career but their professional life as well.

This is why it's important for students accused of academic misconduct to seek the aid of an attorney advisor. An experienced legal professional understands what it takes to clear your name and keep this violation from ruining important opportunities.

What us Academic Misconduct?

The majority of schools in Ohio enforce guidelines to preserve integrity in each student's academic endeavors. When one breaks these rules, it's referred to as academic misconduct. Any actions that could potentially constitute academic misconduct is prohibited and will be penalized.

Academic Misconduct Violations

There are various types of academic misconduct. Here are a few common examples and definitions of actions that could constitute academic misconduct at your school:

  • Cheating: Using or attempting to use an unauthorized source or material to complete an academic exercise or examination. Having someone else do your work for you is an example of cheating.
  • Fabrication/Falsification: Inventing or altering information in an academic exercise.
  • Plagiarism: The act of misrepresenting someone else's work, concepts, words or ideas without the proper acknowledgment of the source.
  • Abuse of materials: Stealing, damaging, destroying, or in any way of obstructing access to academic resources and records.
  • Complicity: Aiding or attempting to aid another student in committing academic misconduct.

Consequences

Because colleges and universities are high-quality learning environments, administrators and professors see academic misconduct as a big deal. The sanctions imposed for a violation can be severe, ranging from a failing course grade to suspension and even expulsion. A violation can also haunt you a student in their professional life, adversely affecting their ability to get hired for government jobs, professions in law, careers in academic and even military enlistment.
