Student allegedly paid to take exam arrested at SFU

Police in Burnaby are investigating allegations of cheating during an exam at Simon Fraser University last week and say they arrested one person.

In a letter to students from SFU’s registrar and vice-provost, Rummana Khan Hemani wrote: “We caught someone impersonating a student in order to write an exam in exchange for money.”

Burnaby RCMP said they were called to the university by campus security last Thursday.

Police said officers arrested a 26-year-old woman for possession of forged documents, but no charges have been laid and the woman has been released on a promise to appear.

Police did not identify the student’s name.
