If I plagiarize at college, can they revoke my scholarship or financial aid?

If you're accused of plagiarism at college, the school can potentially revoke your scholarship or financial aid. It depends on the specific circumstances at hand, of course, but for example, if you're accused of plagiarism and if you're found responsible, if a person say, placed on probation, if there's no separation from one, study's no suspension, for example, or potentially worse expulsions. We leave that altogether, aside at the moment. There's no separation from study such as a suspension. The scholarship or financial aid may not be impacted.

It depends on the terms of the scholarship and the financial aid in terms of what conditions would be say imposed upon a student or what obligations the student would have to maintain that scholarship or say the financial aid. Certainly a separation from studies, all bets are off in the sense of how that could impact a person. Being accused of plagiarism at college is incredibly serious. Having an experienced academic misconduct attorney advisor in your corner from as early as possible in the process will help best help you understand and navigate the process.
