If you're a student at a college or university in Texas and you're facing an academic misconduct charge, it's important to take the matter 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 can impact both present and future opportunities. Graduate school, employment, internships, professional licensing opportunity, can all be negatively impacted.
Different schools in Texas use different resolution methods to address an academic misconduct charge. Some an investigation, some a hearing, some a combination. What's your school's appeal process? Because schools are often, unfortunately, in a rush to judgment, and are not mindful of student's rights and interests, it's critical to have the help of an experienced attorney advisor that can help navigate the process, protect a student's rights, because it can potentially allow for a more favorable outcome.
