Bobby -

If this was a current student we would file a judicial case and support whatever sanctions came out of the hearing.

If this was a former student we would place a Hold against any future SMU admission. We would threaten them with legal action, but in all my years we have never taken any legal action.

All in all, not a very strong response.

Take care,

What is your institution's policy or process when you discover a current student has forged their official transcript from your institution?  Assuming they go through normal disciplinary hearings which find them guilty of the forgery, what would happen?  Do you suspend them?  Put them on probation?  Other?

Thank you for any information you can provide.
