Protecting International Students in New Jersey: A Guide to Academic Misconduct Accusations
International students who pursue education in the United States deserve our respect and admiration for having the dedication and drive to leave their home country for a better future. However, these students face more vulnerabilities than domestic students when charged with academic or Code of Conduct violations. The legal consequences and ramifications of misconduct can be devastating, leading to expulsion, deportation, or even permanent ineligibility.
Cultural differences are among the key reasons why international students are disproportionately accused of misconduct compared to American students. What may seem benign behavior or an innocent mistake can be seen as academic dishonesty through Western lens, despite not being considered such in their culture. Language barriers also pose challenges for student-international communication about class expectations and requirements.
Moreover, some administrators unconsciously express latent xenophobia by questioning international students’ abilities or integrity due to language barriers or cultural differences. For these reasons and others, it’s critical that you understand your rights when facing allegations of academic misconduct during your studies. It’s just as important that you have an experienced attorney advisor on your side who can navigate these situations effectively while keeping your best interests at heart.
