If you're a student at SUNY Empire State College and you're accused of misconduct, you should not speak to the school unless you take the necessary precautions, too much is at stake. At SUNY Empire State College, the school will have specific policies as to how your case will be addressed and adjudicated. Understanding and successfully navigate these policies is important key to success.
As to which policy would apply it will in part be dependent upon the specific offense alleged. Is it the Title IX sexual misconduct charge? Is it an academic integrity or an academic misconduct charge? Or is it a matter of a general disciplinary issue? Understanding that at SUNY Empire State College, as with all schools, they can often be in a rush to judgment and they do not have an accused student's rights and interests in mind, that's why an experienced attorney advisor can navigate the process and can protect an accused student's rights and interest to potentially help allow for the most favorable outcome.
