Harsh Consequences for College Students

If you’re a college student convicted of a crime, you face more potential consequences than an average adult. In addition to the penalties imposed by the court, you could also face educational consequences that can impact your status as a student.

  • The educational consequences of a conviction can include:
  • Suspension
  • Expulsion
  • Removal of any scholarships or other financial aid
  • Removal from sports teams and other extracurricular groups
  • Disqualification from many federal loans and grants

A misdemeanor or felony conviction can also impact your ability to find work in your career of choice, as these convictions may appear on a background check run by a prospective employer. If you are seeking a professional license, such as a medical license, you will face a difficult uphill battle.
