Welcome to the Rising Scholars Network Clean Slate Program!

The Rising Scholars Network is teaming up with The Access Project (TAP) to provide free post-conviction legal services to our students. Expunging your convictions and reducing your felonies, wherever possible, can make a difference when you are applying for jobs, looking for housing, and working to put the justice system behind you.

TAP lawyer-volunteers will guide you through the expungement/dismissal and felony reduction process, all the way from getting a copy of your record through a final hearing of your case.

Students will need to commit to see the process through and stay in communication with TAP. All services are free, and fees for record collection and court filing are covered.

Check out the links below for more information.

If you’d like to take advantage of these free services, click the "Am I Eligible?" button below.  You'll be asked to answer a few screening questions first, and then, if you are eligible, you will be redirected to the registration page.

Visit our FAQ Page for more details on your rights and on how the Clean Slate program will work, or sign up for office hours here.

If you need help, please schedule an appointment for office hours.
