(THE COLLEGE FIX) – The Texas Supreme Court recent heard oral arguments in a case that would permit two public colleges to rescind doctoral degrees from students who allegedly cheated on their dissertations, Higher Ed Dive reported Monday.
At issue is a former University of Texas at Austin student, known in court documents by the initials “S.O.,” who argues her degree should not be revoked after she “engaged in academic misconduct,” according to an initial court document presented to the court (pictured). “[S.O.] seeks…relief prohibiting the Defendants from revoking her doctoral degree.”
“S.O.,” identified by Higher Ed Dive as Suvi Orr, has joined with another student, known in court documents as “K.E.” The two are jointly suing public Texas schools. Orr said she did not intentionally fudge the data, but instead made a mistake.
