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:
- 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.
