What Are Your Rights In a Student Disciplinary Hearing?
If you are charged or arrested for a crime in Bryan-College Station, you may also be charged with a complaint for violating the Texas A&M student conduct code, even if the offense occured off-campus. Such complaints are generally submitted in writing to Student Conflict Resolution Services or the Office of the Commandant. Texas A&M University disciplinary action may include suspension, dismissal, expulsion, or letters of reprimand. Defending your criminal charges may, therefore, be only half the battle. Below are links helpful for an understanding of the disciplinary process.
Students have important rights in student conduct proceedings. I have written extensively on the Texas A&M Unversity disciplinary process on my Criminal Defense Blog. Feel free to check out these posts to learn more about handling conduct code complaints and their important interaction with the Brazos County criminal justice system.
DO NOT REPRESENT YOURSELF IF CRIMINAL CHARGES ARE PENDING OR YOU ARE THE FOCUS OF A CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION. STATEMENTS YOU MAKE WILL BE USED AGAINST YOU IN CRIMINAL COURT!
