  •  Intrusion into SCU Student Grade Records

    Tuesday, Dec. 13, 2011


    I would like to provide you with an update on the University's response to the discovery of a computer intrusion which resulted in a number of unauthorized grade changes.
    Following Santa Clara's announcement of the grade tampering incident on November 14, 2011, the university registrar has reached out to each and every faculty member, undergraduate student and former student whose grades were altered by the computer intrusion.  In addition to notifying the affected parties that one or more of their grades had been inappropriately changed, the registrar invited them to contact her immediately if they believed that any of the grade changes was indeed authorized.  The response from the registrar's inquiry confirmed that none of the grade changes in question was legitimate.  Consequently on December 9, 2011, the university registrar restored all inappropriately changed grades back to the original values submitted by the respective instructors.
    The University continues to cooperate fully with the FBI's ongoing investigation into the incident. 
    Warm wishes for a relaxing holiday,
