75 to 98 Percent of College Students Have Cheated

Jun 29, 2011

Back in 1940, only 20 percent of college students admitted to cheating during their academic careers. Today, that number has increased to a range of 75%-98%.

Cheating Statistics
  • Cheating typically begins in middle school
  • Nine out of ten middle schoolers admit to copying someone else's homework; two-thirds say they have cheated on exams
  • Cheating most often occurs in science and math classes
  • 75%-98% percent of college students surveyed each year admit to cheating at some time in their academic careers
  • The college students who are most likely to cheat are engineering and business majors


I'm glad I don't have kids sometimes...
