Are you a student attending a college or university in Nevada? (Or do you have a loved one who attends a Nevada school?)
While you're working hard in pursuit of a degree, you're probably working hard with the impression that as long as you keep doing so, you'll get a degree.
For many, this will be true. But it's definitely not something you can take for granted. More and more students are finding themselves on the receiving end of misconduct allegations and frustrating failure to progress scenarios that could wreak their future before they even receive their degrees.
Seem like a long shot? It's not. Increasingly, all it takes is one mistake, miscommunication, or misunderstanding to put your degree in jeopardy and ruin your reputation. For example, think about what could happen if:
- Someone alleges that you cheated or plagiarized, and your school notes that on your permanent record
- You're involved in a sexual misconduct investigation (even if you're totally innocent)
- Your educator claims that you're not progressing in your academic work as fast as you should and gets you suspended as a result
These are not niche, rare circumstances. It can be terrifyingly easy to get mixed up in confusing code of conduct cases. If you're stressed out about your current academic performance, imagine what it would be like if your educator decided to flunk you, as well.
