Can a DUI charge hurt your college prospects?

On behalf of Steven Wetter of Steven Wetter Attorney at Law, P.A. posted in Underage Drinking on Wednesday, April 26, 2017.
As an underage student in Florida aspiring to attend college in the near future, you have a lot to gain ahead of you. Unfortunately, this also means that you have a lot to lose. If you’re facing a DUI charge, you may be wondering, “is my future education at risk?”

This is a very good question to be asking, and in some cases, the answer is yes. Ignition Interlock Help points out that you must disclose your criminal record when applying to a vast majority of colleges. What does this mean for you? Simply put, if you have a DUI conviction on your record, you’ll need to report it. Trying to lie about a DUI conviction or reporting it incorrectly can result in instant expulsion if you are accepted without disclosing all of the proper information, and can lead to your rejection if it’s discovered before you’re accepted.
