Accused of forging a doctor’s note, sign-in or internship log in college?


I was charged with falsifying or forging class records. What does that mean?

It could mean you are accused of one of the following:.

  • Helping your friend out and signing them into class or lab.
  • Playing as your friend in a class polling assignment for credit.
  • Noting time on an internship log that you did not complete.
  • Noting dates and time on a lab attendance record when you were not there.

What happens if I was caught falsifying my class records?

Check your universities procedure for academic dishonesty violations. Generally, students are allowed to defend themselves against forgery accusations. It may happen between just you and the professor or in front of an honor code committee.

What can happen if I am found responsible for fabricating school documents?

You will receive a sanction. Sanctions can range from a warning up to dismissal and expulsion from your university.
