College Disciplinary Violation Advisor in Texas

College students attending higher education institutions in Texas will be subject to their school's code of conduct. Any actions that could possibly constitute a violation of the code of conduct will be penalized through disciplinary action. The outcomes of disciplinary proceedings can lead to serious repercussions that can haunt students for the entirety of their college career and can even follow a student down to their professional lives as well.

This is why students facing accusations of a disciplinary violation should seek representation from an experienced Texas attorney advisor.

Common Code of Conduct Violations

Every institution is different, so there will be varying rules at each one. Most colleges and universities have dozens of regulations for students to abide by. But in my experience as an attorney advisor, here are some of the most commonly charged code of conduct violations:

Academic Misconduct

Academic integrity is at the crux of a thriving learning environment. This is why schools impose regulations intended to preserve academic integrity in their institution. If students fail to comply with these rules, they may be accused of committing academic misconduct, an outright violation of most schools' code of conduct. There are various forms of this type of conduct. Actions that could constitute academic misconduct may include plagiarism, cheating, fabrication, complicity and more.

Alcohol

Schools have varying rules concerning alcohol possession and consumption on campus. Some institutions may restrict alcohol possession and consumption for students under the age of 21, while others may have limitations to on-campus alcohol use regardless of age. At most schools, there will be consequences for providing alcohol to students who are underage.

Disorderly Conduct

Engaging in conduct that could be characterized as lewd, disruptive, indecent, regardless of intent, is considered disorderly conduct. Any actions that breach the peace of the campus community will be considered disorderly conduct.

Hazing

Many colleges and universities still have hazing rituals. But these rituals will be considered a disciplinary violation if it is discovered that this conduct humiliates, degrades, or endangers the physical or mental health of another.

Sexual Misconduct

Sexual misconduct rates are very high on college and university campuses. Any actions that could potentially constitute sexual misconduct - sexual harassment, sexual assault, rape etc. - is a violation of every school's code of conduct and Title IX.

Theft

Talking or attempting to take school property or private property without the consent of the owner or the person responsible for that property is considered theft. It comes in many forms that can be determined based on certain circumstances.

A responsible finding for a disciplinary violation may lead to consequences as serious as suspension or expulsion. This is why it's important that accused students remember that they have rights. With so much at stake, the only surefire way you can make sure the process is equitable and that your rights are protected is to retain an attorney advisor to be in your corner throughout the disciplinary process.
