Michigan is home to many colleges and universities that probably have a “code of conduct.” This code is comprised of rules enforced in an effort to maintain a safe and disruption-free campus community. At each school the code will look a little different, so be sure to check your school's student handbook for clarification on the rules you are expected to follow.
In the event that a student is accused of violating any of the rules within this code, they will undergo a disciplinary proceeding to determine whether or not they are “responsible” for violating school policy. A responsible determination for a seemingly minor violation following a disciplinary proceeding can get you in serious trouble. Trouble that may not only derail the progression of your college career but haunt you further down the line in your professional life as well.
If you are a student facing disciplinary violation allegations, they should not be taken lightly. Don't hesitate to seek guidance from an experienced Michigan advisor. An attorney advisor's presence in your case will ensure a fair process and result.
