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

Colleges and universities in Michigan have increased their use of online education and as a result, college students can often, unfortunately, find themselves accused of academic misconduct or an academic integrity violation for their taking of an online exam or their submission of an online assignment. Allegations of this nature can vary. They can include plagiarism, the use of unauthorized resources such as Internet resources, unauthorized collaboration, working with, or copying from others.

Professors are often quick to accuse a student without completing an investigation or without even interviewing a student and schools are often 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 the assignment 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 to help you understand and navigate the disciplinary process and to best defend against allegations of this nature.
