College Code of Conduct Student Defense Advisor - Nevada

If you go to college in Nevada, there is almost certainly a code of conduct that your school expects you to abide by. Breaking one of the rules contained in this code can lead to an investigation that can end with a disciplinary violation. Unfortunately, violations are not trivial: Even if the penalty is light, it will still put a mark on your academic record that can make it far more difficult to get the job you want, once you graduate.

Hiring a lawyer to serve as your advisor for the disciplinary process can be the best way to defend against this.

Disciplinary Violations in Nevada

Even though every college and university in Nevada has its own code of conduct, the differences between them are often in the details and in the procedures used to investigate alleged disciplinary violations. Most of the schools prohibit the same types of conduct.

Academic Misconduct and Cheating

One of the most serious allegations you can face is for academic misconduct, which can include cheating on a test, plagiarizing a project or a paper, or even falsifying or forging official school documents. The most serious instances of academic misconduct can lead to you being expelled from school. All of them, though, carry the risk of a serious blemish on your academic record that can pose a difficulty as you enter the professional world.

Sexual Misconduct

Sexual assault, harassment, stalking, or rape all constitute sexual misconduct, one of the things that college codes of conduct prohibit. Sexual misconduct can also implicate Title IX, the federal law that prohibits gender discrimination on campus. Title IX pressures colleges to vigorously enforce its rules against sexual misconduct or risk losing their federal funding. If you have been accused of violating this aspect of your school's code of conduct, then, you can expect your school to do all it can to find a disciplinary violation that can devastate your future.


Recent instances of hazing have forced schools to come down hard on students and organizations that are behind initiation procedures that excessively demean recruits, or that put them into too much danger.

Alcohol and Underage Drinking

Perhaps the most common disciplinary violation in Nevada is underage drinking. The codes of conduct of many schools are dominated by the rules and regulations that prohibit underage drinking – and occasionally adult drinking, as well – on campus. Just because it is a common violation, though, does not mean that future employers will not frown upon it. Many students in Nevada have had to explain a disciplinary violation for underage drinking after graduation.
