If you're a student at a college or university in Rhode Island and you're facing an academic misconduct or academic dishonesty charge, it's important to take the matter seriously. Academic misconduct charges come in various forms, cheating on an exam, plagiarism, not citing properly. Whatever the charge may be, it needs to be favorably resolved because it can impact the student in both the present and in the future.
Graduate school, internships, employment, professional licensing opportunities can all be impacted. Different schools use different resolution methods. Some schools use a hearing, some an investigation, some a combination. What's your school's appeal process?
