college admissions / school

A conviction for DUI/DWI can have long-lasting effects on a person’s life, including the denial of an application for admission to a college, university, or other school. A DUI/DWI can also be the basis for probation, suspension, or expulsion from a college, university, or other school—and loss of scholarships—especially if it is the student’s second (or more) DUI/DWI conviction.

Consequences for a DUI/DWI conviction vary from school to school and may also depend on whether the conviction was for a misdemeanor or a more serious felony charge.
