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

If you're a student at a college or university in Vermont, and you're facing an academic or academic dishonesty charge, it's important to take the matters seriously. Charges can encompass various forms: cheating on an exam, plagiarism, collaborating with other students, not setting properly in a paper. Whatever the charge may be, it needs to be favorably resolved because it can impact both present and future opportunities. Graduate School internships, employment, professional licensing opportunities can all be negatively impacted.

Different schools use different resolution methods: some an investigation, some a hearing, some a combination. What's your school's appeal process? Because schools are, unfortunately, often in a rush to judgment and are not mindful of a student's rights and interest and just what's at stake, it's important to understand that, and also to have the help of an experienced attorney-adviser help navigate the process and protect the student's rights to potentially allow for a more favorable outcome.
