If you're a student at a college or university in Hawaii and you're facing an academic misconduct charge, it needs to be taken seriously. Academic misconduct charges can impact a student academically and professionally. It can affect graduate school internships employment.
Academic misconduct charges themselves come in various forms; not citing properly, cheating on an exam, plagiarism. Whatever the charge maybe, it's important to understand your school's particular process for addressing and resolving an academic misconduct charge. Is it going to be an investigation that your school conduct? Is it going to be a hearing that takes place? If you're found responsible, God forbid, the appeal process can be altogether different.
Whatever the case maybe, schools are often in a rush to judgment and not cognizant of a student's rights unfortunately. Having an experienced advisor through the process, they can help navigate and can potentially help allow for a more favorable outcome.
