Colleges and universities in Nevada have increased their use of online education and as a result, college students can unfortunately often find themselves accused of academic misconduct for 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, unauthorized assistance using unauthorized resources.
Professors are often quick to accuse a student without completing a full investigation or even interviewing the student and schools can be in a rush to judgment. Defending against allegations of this nature requires a very careful analysis of the exam or the assignment, a very careful analysis of the response to the exam, or the assignment to determine exactly what took place and whether there is an alternative explanation to the allegations 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 charges of this nature.
