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

 

If you're a student at a college or university in Indiana and you're facing an academic misconduct charge, it needs to be taken seriously. Academic misconduct charges, they come in various forms, but they can unfortunately impact a student both at school and in the future with respect to employment opportunities, internships, graduate school.

Whatever the charge maybe, if it's plagiarism, improper sighting on a paper, cheating on an exam, collaborating with other students, the school's particular resolution methods need to be understood. Is it going to be a hearing, is it going to be an investigation? If a student is found responsible, what is the appeal process? Because schools are often in a rush to judgment and do not even necessarily follow their own policies to the letter. It's important that you understand the process and it's equally important that an experienced advisor help you navigate the process because they can potentially allow for a more favorable outcome.
