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

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.
