    Default Re: Is Academic Cheating a Crime

    It would take some rather extraordinary facts for cheating to become a crime. For example, if the cheating involves the theft of a test or test results, or hacking into a computer in order to access test information or change grades, then there would be a possibility of a criminal charge for those acts -- and it is possible that a person caught cheating could be charged as an accessory, accomplice or conspirator even if those acts were committed by another person.
