I received notification that an Academic Misconduct Case has been brought against me and have read the letter you sent, but I am still unsure what my next steps are.

I was offered an expedited sanction. What does that mean?

A friend of mine was offered an expedited sanction and I was told that I had to go directly to a hearing. Why?

I acknowledge that I violated the Honor Code but I feel that the sanction that I was offered in the expedited process is too harsh. Should I ask for a hearing?

I’m having a difficult time understanding the differences of plagiarism, and I don’t want to get in trouble for accidentally plagiarizing my paper. What can I do?

Part of my sanction was a letter of reprimand. What exactly does that mean? What is its impact on my application to postgraduate schools or getting a job?

 A friend and I worked together on a homework assignment and now our professor reported us for cheating. But he never said we couldn’t work together, so why are we in trouble?

During my last test, I saw a couple of students peeking at notes they had slipped underneath their exam, but my professor didn’t see. I was so angry and frustrated! I wanted to say something, but I don’t want to be targeted as a snitch or tattletale. What can I do about it?

What are my rights during an Academic Misconduct Hearing?
