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

Colleges and universities in Oklahoma have increased their use of online education and technology, and as a result, college students can 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 unauthorized collaboration, working with or copying from another, having unauthorized assistance, using unauthorized resources including internet resources, violation of testing conditions, plagiarism.

Professors are often quick to accuse a student without completing a full investigation or even interviewing a student, and schools in Oklahoma are often in a rush to judgment. Defending against allegations of this nature requires a very careful analysis of the exam or assignment in question, the response to the exam or assignment so that it can be determined 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 at your school and to best defend against charges of this nature.
