A junior was referred to SJA for submitting a forged homework assignment in an economics class.The student altered a graded homework assignment by erasing the old problem set and writing in a new problem set in an attempt to get credit for an assignment that she failed to submit on time.She presented the altered assignment to her professor claiming that he must have made a mistake in his grade book by giving her a zero because she already received credit for it,which should thereby change her overall course grade to an A-instead of a B.The professor knew he had never received the assignment and could see the erased assignment problems beneath the new problems.The student failed to attend her scheduled meeting with SJA and administrative holds were placed on her records.In the meantime,the junior wasdismissed for academic reasons.
