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

If you're a student at a college or university in Maryland and you're facing an academic misconduct charge, it needs to be taken seriously. Academic misconduct charges come in various forms. It can be not citing properly on a paper, plagiarism, cheating on an exam. Whatever the case may be, an academic misconduct charge, if not favorably resolved, can impact a student, for example, with respect to internships, graduate school, future employment, professional licensing opportunities.

Different schools use different resolution methods. Some schools use an investigation, some schools use a hearing, some schools use a combination. What's your school's appeal process? Schools, unfortunately, are often in a rush to judgment and are not mindful of the student's rights and interest throughout the process. It's important to understand that.
