What does it mean...

Without knowing the specifics of the case we cannot tell you what that means, but there are some commonalities that might help you understand things better.First, this is not a legal process.That means that even if your child is being accused of what sounds like a crime, her being found responsible does not mean she will face any sanction beyond what the college can administer. Second, your child will be expected to serve as her own advocate.In other words, nobody will be in the hearing to argue on her behalf even if she is allowed an advisor.Third, if your child is found responsible, she may be placed on probation (i.e., have a disciplinary mark placed on her transcript and/or have certain privileges limited), suspended (i.e., forced to leave the institution for a set period of time,often with concurrent conditions which must be satisfied prior to readmission), or expelled (i.e.,permanently dismissed from the institution).Your child may be able to appeal these results, but the decision of an appellate body is usually final. Fourth, your child will be able to recover from whatever happens and, while the pathshe takes may be different than she originally planned, she will be able to reach her goals.
