My child is facing a review board at college. What can I do?

College can be the best four years of your life. When leaving for college, students have so many opportunities ahead of them. While they may be nervous to live away from home and be on their own, it is a very exciting time in their lives. Whether they are attending their dream school or their second choice college, they usually will have to sign a code of conduct. Many colleges and universities make their enrolled students do this to prevent misbehavior. However, as young adults grow up, they are bound to make mistakes. If your child has found themselves in violation of the student code of conduct and is facing a school review board, contact our attorneys for help. We can help ensure they have a successful future.

When students enter college, they are exposed to a new environment. This environment is filled with new experiences that they look forward to. Although many of these experiences can be positive, some of them involve trying new things that may not have the same conclusion. College students often partake in a culture that involves alcohol and drug abuse. If this is the case, they can be caught by school officials and their attendance at school could be in jeopardy.

Due to a school’s code of conduct, students could be faced with disciplinary action by their administration. Some of the misconduct cases they can be involved in include underage drinking, drug possession, theft, assault, sexual misconduct, plagiarism and cheating. When these occurrences happen, the future of the student is at stake. No matter how serious the crime is, the student may receive a permanent mark on their academic record. No student wants to be faced with consequences that could ruin their future. In order to ensure that your child receives the best help possible, contact our professionals. We have experience dealing with cases such as these.

Some of the acts mentioned can be more serious in nature. When it comes to these situations, students may have to face a school’s review board and criminal charges as well. With this in mind, it’s always best to consult a professional to make sure your child receives all the help possible to present their case. A review board at a school has the power to revoke housing privileges and expel students, along with much more. These consequences can greatly affect the life of the student. They may not even be able to get a proper college education in the end.

Students make mistakes, especially when they explore in college. Some schools may not be as forgiving about these mistakes and can threaten the future of your child’s education. We are here to help your child get the education they wish for.
