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

If you're a student at a college or university in Oregon 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 if not, it can impact both present and future opportunities, graduate school, internships, employment opportunities, professional licensing can all be negatively impacted.

Different schools in Oregon use different resolution methods, some use an investigation, some are hearing, some are combination. 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 interests, an experienced attorney advisor can help navigate the process, can help protect the student's rights and can potentially help allow for a more favorable outcome.
