Foreign nationals attending school in Connecticut on student visas face especially high risks if arrested for any drug charge or other serious offenses – they may lose their right to remain in the United States if convicted of the offense. American students can find that a drug conviction, even on misdemeanor marijuana charges, may disqualify them for federal student loans.
Any student convicted of a serious criminal charge can expect problems with academic discipline, access to student housing, opportunities to continue their education beyond college or later entry into a licensed profession. Our representation of college and university students will take all of these factors into account.
