Academic Consequences of a DUI

An arrest for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs poses the threat of harsh consequences for people from all walks of life, including college students. As such, students who are charged with DUI need to consider the possible negative effects that an arrest could have on their academic careers.

When the university learns about the situation, the student could be at risk of losing a scholarship or financial aid; they could even be suspended or expelled, depending on the school policies and the student code of conduct. Some universities might also use DUI charges to deny a prospective student admission to the school. Even if you are allowed to complete your degree, you might find that having a conviction on your record bars you from eligibility for professional licensure or prevents you from finding suitable employment.
