Accused of cheating by gaining an academic advantage? Defense tips from a lawyer for students.

's Profile Image

What is considered gaining an academic advantage?

Most colleges believe that any action that puts you in a better position than other students is gaining an academic advantage. This means that some of the following could fall under this category:

  • Being absent for a test and asking a friend what was on it
  • Having someone else edit a paper or your homework
  • Working with another person to complete assigned work

How do I prove I wasn’t purposely absent on exam day?

If you believe the professor does not have any other evidence to support the cheating accusation, bring a note from a doctor with you. If you were sick and stopped by the health clinic then this could be one way of proving your innocence.

Can you help me fight a charge of cheating by gaining an academic advantage?

Yes. I help students all over the country defend against academic integrity and honor code violations. I assist students using my nearly twenty years as an attorney combined with a specialized knowledge of the university disciplinary process to help students achieve positive results.

I tried to defend myself and lost the academic hearing. Can you help me appeal?

Yes. I write appeals for students facing academic sanctions like a failing course grade, notation on transcripts, suspension, and even expulsion from school. Writing a winning student appeal takes an attorney with experience.

Can you help all college students that need a college suspension appeal?

Yes. I work with students all over the country who are facing discipline in college.
