Cheating Scandal at Upstate Medical University

May 16, 2011

A cheating scandal at the Upstate Medical University of the State University of New York may prevent some fourth-year students from graduating as scheduled this month, The Post-Standard reported. The cheating involved collaboration on online quizzes. Some students violated the honor code not by cheating, but by failing to report the cheating of which they were aware. University officials declined to say how many of the 154 students in the class might not graduate, but said that the figure was "more than just a handful" but less than half of the class.
