What should I do if my college student is accused of academic misconduct on an online exam or assignment in Arizona? VIDEO

With the ever-increasing nature of online education, college students in Arkansas, unfortunately, can find themselves often accused of academic misconduct involving the taking of an online exam or the submission of an online assignment. The allegations of this nature can vary in scope. They can include copying from others, unauthorized collaboration, plagiarism, the use of unauthorized resources such as internet resources or using other tools to complete the exam or assignment.

Schools are often in a rush to judgment, professors often are quick to make an allegation without completing an investigation or even interviewing a student. Defending against allegations of this nature requires a very careful analysis of the exam or the assignment. What was submitted in response to determine exactly what happened and whether there's an alternative explanation to the allegation of academic misconduct.

Having an experienced attorney advisor will be your best ally. They'll help you understand and navigate the process and help you best defend against allegations of this nature.
