With the ever-increasing nature of online education, college students in Alaska can often, unfortunately, find themselves accused of academic misconduct when taking an online exam or submitting an online assignment. The allegations can vary in nature. They can range from, say, collaborating with another student, using unauthorized resources including unauthorized internet resources, plagiarism, using other tools to complete the exam or assignment. Professors are unfortunately often quick to make an allegation or are quick to a rush to judgment without completing a full investigation or even interviewing the student.
Defending against allegations of this nature requires a very careful analysis of the assignment, the exam, the instructions, the expectations, that is, in addition to the response or whatever was submitted to the school per the assignment or exam to determine exactly what took place and if there's an alternative explanation for the allegation of academic misconduct.
Having an experienced attorney advisor will help you understand and navigate the process and they'll help you best defend against an allegation of this nature.
