Can an academic misconduct case lead to loss of study abroad or other privileges?

There's no question that if a student is found responsible for an academic misconduct case, that it can lead to a loss of study abroad or other privileges. It will depend on the severity of the alleged act of academic misconduct. Cases, say, that were an oversight or a lack of intention regarding the misconduct or the offense, say, would be less likely to result in a more severe consequence. Whereas academic misconduct that was intentional in nature, or involved any kind of, say, planning or exchange of something for some benefit, such as paying somebody to take an exam or to write a paper, for example, the consequences would be, in almost all likelihood, much more potentially severe.

A lot is at stake in an academic misconduct case, both in terms of the immediate consequence and also privileges such as study abroad and otherwise. That's why it's important to make sure that you're responding to the case as best as possible to try to achieve a favorable outcome. An attorney advisor who's experienced in such matters is your best ally in doing so.
