Colleges and Universities in Delaware have increased their use of online education and as a result, college students, unfortunately, can often find themselves accused of academic misconduct involving their taking of an online exam or their submission of an online assignment. Allegations of this nature can vary. They can include working with others, collaborating with others, copying from others, plagiarism, using unauthorized resources including internet resources, other tools to complete the exam or assignment.
Professors and schools are often in a rush to judgment. They're often quick to make an allegation without completing a full 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 took place, and whether there is an alternative explanation to the allegation of academic misconduct.
Having an experienced attorney advisor will be your best ally to help you understand and navigate the process and to best defend against an academic integrity violation of this nature.
