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

Colleges and universities in Hawaii have increased their use of online education and as a result, students can unfortunately 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 unauthorized collaboration, working or copying with others, plagiarism, the use of unauthorized resources including internet resources.

Professors are often quick to accuse a student without completing a full investigation or even interviewing a student. Schools can also be in a rush to judgment. Defending against allegations of this nature requires a very careful analysis of the exam or the assignment, the response to the exam or assignment or what was submitted to determine exactly what took place and whether there's 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 allegations of this nature.
