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

If you're a student at a college or university in Kansas and you're facing an academic misconduct charge, it's important to take it seriously. Academic misconduct charges, they can affect a student both whether they go to school and in the future can affect graduate school, internships, employment, professional license in the future. Academic misconduct charges, they come in various forms; not citing properly on a paper, plagiarism, cheating on an exam. Whatever the case may be, it's important to understand your school's particular resolution method, will be an investigation, will be a hearing, will be a culmination of the two, what's the school's appeal process.

Because schools are often in a rush to judgment and are not cognizant of a student's rights throughout the process and also what's potentially at stake, it's critical to understand that. It's also critical to have an experienced advisor help you navigate the process because they can potentially allow for a more favorable outcome.
