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

Colleges and universities in Kentucky have increased their use of online education, and as a result, college 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 plagiarism, unauthorized collaboration, violation of testing conditions, the use of unauthorized resources.

Professors are often quick to accuse a student without completing an 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, and anything related, in addition to the exam, the response to the exam or the assignment 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 disciplinary process.
