When a student is found responsible for misconduct at their college or university, whether or not they will be subject to expulsion will often depend upon the offense itself. For example, Title IX sexual misconduct charges of a student found responsible for non-consensual sex, even if there's no say, arguable force if it's just a matter of say lack of consent, 99 out of 100 times a student will be expelled. Any kind of say, penetration for a Title IX sexual misconduct case if there's aggravating factors, it certainly can result in their expulsion. Academic misconduct and academic integrity charges, if it's a more serious case or if a student's a repeat offender, that can also result in expulsion, at say, professional schools such as law school or medical school, schools that hold their students to a higher standard so even a lesser form or any academic misconduct can result in expulsion.
The same would be true of, say general disciplinary issues. If a student is say, facing or found responsible for a drug offense or selling drugs on campus, for example, that's going to result in an expulsion. An expulsion can greatly impact a student to the point where they will never get into another school. They may not be precluded from applying but that's the unfortunate reality. An experienced attorney advisor can help navigate the process and he can help in trying to avoid it finding responsibility or could take steps to try to mitigate a potential problem.
