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

 

If you're a college or university student in Georgia and you're facing an academic misconduct charge, it needs to be taken seriously. Schools, unfortunately, are often in a rush to judgment and do not respect our own processes. Academic misconduct charges can affect a student in profound ways, both academically and professionally, can affect graduate school, internships, employment. Academic misconduct can come in various forms. Plagiarism, cheating on an exam, collaboration, not citing properly. Different schools use different resolution methods, and it's critical to understand yours.

Some schools use an investigation model, some schools use a hearing model, and if a student's appealing a finding of academic misconduct, it can be an altogether different process yet. Because schools are often in a rush to judgment and because so much is at stake, having an experienced advisor help navigate the process is critical and can also help potentially allow for a more favorable outcome.
