College Disciplinary Violation Advisor in Wyoming

Every college in Wyoming has its own code of conduct. The rules in that code dictate what students can and cannot do on campus, and set out the process and penalties for a disciplinary violation. Contrary to popular belief, one of those disciplinary violations can carry significant penalties and can put such a blemish on your academic record that interested employers think twice about hiring you once you graduate.

Hiring a lawyer to be your advisor if you have been accused of a disciplinary violation in Wyoming can be the best way to protect your rights and your professional future.

Types of Disciplinary Violations in Wyoming

While every college in the state has its own code of conduct with its own unique set of rules and procedures, there are similar themes that each school touches on, almost without fail.

Alcohol and Underage Drinking

Perhaps one of the most prominent parts of a college's code of conduct is for underage drinking and the use of alcohol on campus. Colleges in Wyoming aim to take underage drinking seriously because of its ability to hurt a student's college experience and professional future. As a result, disciplinary violations that are alcohol-related are especially common on campus.

Hazing

Another unique college experience is hazing, which can come from especially aggressive initiation procedures for student organizations, fraternities, or even sports teams. When those procedures for bringing in new recruits put them in danger, the people who organized the activity in question can face a disciplinary violation for their role.

Sexual Misconduct and Harassment

One of the most serious disciplinary violation allegations that you can face on a campus in Wyoming is for sexual assault, harassment, stalking, or rape. Allegations of this type are severe, and can even implicate federal laws, like Title IX, which pressure a school into aggressively prosecuting an incident of sexual misconduct or risk losing their federal funding. The repercussions of a disciplinary violation for an act of sexual conduct are severe, and can even lead to being expelled from school.

Academic Misconduct

Another severe example of a disciplinary violation is for academic misconduct. All schools take their academic reputations seriously, and so vigorously enforce their expectations of academic integrity. Violations of this portion of a school's code of conduct – for things like cheating, plagiarism, forging school documents, or destroying or distributing academic materials like exams – can also be punished with expulsion. Even lesser penalties, though, can taint your school record and prove to be an obstacle as you enter the working world.
