What should I do if I am accused of academic misconduct at a college or university in Arkansas?

If you're a student at a college or university in Arkansas, and you're facing an academic misconduct charge, you know it's a serious matter. What needs to take place is you need to make sure that you're familiar with your school's process for resolving an academic misconduct charge. Academic misconduct can encompass various forms: plagiarism, not citing properly, cheating on an exam. Different schools use different resolution methods. Some schools use an investigation model. Some schools use a hearing model. Some schools use a combination of the two.

Schools, unfortunately, are often in a rush to judgment. They do not respect a student's rights and interests through the process. Not to say that the school was intentionally looking to do so, but too much is at stake to leave anything at chance. An experienced advisor can help a student who's accused of academic misconduct in Arkansas, and taking these necessary steps can potentially allow for a more favorable outcome.
