Accused of cheating after taking a make-up exam? Tips from a defense lawyer for students.

Students miss exams or paper deadlines for many reasons: illness, family emergencies and other unexpected issues can arise. Most professors are understanding and will work with a student if they keep them informed. However, what can happen if, after you get an extension for a paper or take a make-up exam, you are then accused of cheating? Read on for tips from a defense attorney for students.

How do I prove I am not making up an excuse for being absent?

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. If it was a family issue, plane tickets or other travel receipts could back up your situation.
