Over 100 Harvard Undergrads Are Being Investigated For Cheating on Finals

Largest such case in living memory, claims Dean of Undergraduate Education


About 125 Harvard University undergraduates are being investigated for cheating in a final exam last year, the largest academic misconduct scandal in the prestigious institution's history.

The Harvard College Administrative Board is reviewing the allegations of "academic dishonesty", ranging from "inappropriate collaboration to outright plagiarism, on a take-home final exam," Dean of Undergraduate Education Jay Harris said in a note sent to students.
