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

If you're a student at a college or university in Louisiana and you find yourself facing an academic misconduct charge, it needs to be taken seriously. Academic misconduct charges, whatever the case may be, whether it's plagiarism, not citing properly, cheating on an exam, collaboration with other students, it can affect you both now and in the future. It can affect graduate school applications, internships, employment. If you're trying to become a doctor, for example, or seek a professional license at a later time, it can affect that also. Schools use different resolution methods. It's important to understand your particular school's resolution method. Is it going to be an investigation?

Is it going to be a hearing? What's your school's appeal process? Schools are often in a rush to judgment and they may not follow their own processes. They are definitely not cognizant of a student's rights throughout the process or how it can impact them. It's important that you'd be mindful of that and an experienced advisor can help navigate the process, can help protect your rights, and it can potentially help allow for a more favorable outcome.
