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

If you're a student at a college or university in North Carolina and you're facing an academic misconduct charge, it needs to be taken seriously. Academic misconduct charges come in various forms: Plagiarism, not citing properly on a paper, cheating on an exam. Whatever the charge may be, it needs to be favorably resolved because it could impact both the present and future opportunities, graduate school, internships, employment, professional licensing opportunities can all be negatively impacted.

Different schools use different resolution methods. Some schools use an investigation, some are hearing. What's your school's appeal process? Because schools are often in a rush to judgment and are not mindful of the student's rights and interest through the process, it's important to understand that, it's also important to have the help of an experienced attorney-advisor who can help navigate the process, protect the student's rights so that they could potentially help allow for a more favorable outcome.
