What should I do if my high school student is accused of academic misconduct in New Jersey? VIDEO

When a high school student in New Jersey is accused of academic misconduct, it can have a dramatic effect on your child's ability to attend the college or university of their choice. Academic misconduct can include cheating on an exam, using unauthorized internet resources, plagiarism, cheating on College Board Assessments, the SAT, SAT subject matter exams, AP exams. It is crucial that your high school student is afforded their due process rights, that the charges are clearly defined, that the process used to investigate the charges is fair and that any resolution or sanction is proportionate and appropriate to the offense.

In particular, interacting with the College Board requires a detailed understanding of the process to achieve the best possible outcome. The College Board takes misconduct extremely seriously and often acts with a heavy hand in imposing sanctions.

An experienced attorney advisor will be your high school student's best ally in defending against academic misconduct charges and they should be involved from as early as possible in the case.
