Can an academic misconduct case lead to suspension?

An academic misconduct case can lead to suspension. It will depend on the alleged act of or acts of academic misconduct, the severity of it that is, the more severe the act is, not to state what may be obvious, but the greater likelihood there would be of a more severe consequence such as suspension or even expulsion. It would also depend on the student's prior disciplinary history at the school and potentially otherwise if the student had been in trouble before for academic misconduct, then certainly the possible consequences or the likelihood of a suspension would be magnified.

For students on probation for academic misconduct, at many schools, if they are found responsible for another act, or even, say, potentially charged, that could result in an immediate suspension. Yes, there's definitely many cases where suspension could be a possible outcome if somebody is found responsible for an academic misconduct case.
