A Harvard student was dismissed after he hacked into his instructors’ online accounts and gained unauthorized access to a grading system, the university confirmed today.
The Faculty Council decided to dismiss the undergraduate student, whose name has not been released, last week, the Harvard Crimson reported.
The student crafted a website to gather his instructors' confidential log-on information, which he then used to access the grading system, the Crimson reported.
Jeff Neal, a Harvard spokesman, confirmed the student newspaper’s account but would provide no further comment.
