ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — About 200 students at the University of Central Florida in Orlando have come forward in a cheating scandal.

Nearly 600 students had to retake a midterm this week for a senior-level business course after the instructor, Richard Quinn, was tipped off to the cheating. When Quinn confronted the class, he said any students who turned themselves in before the makeup test could take an ethics seminar and remain in the class. Those who stayed quiet and got caught could face expulsion.

The university hasn't made a final decision about what to do with 15 students who they believe cheated but did not confess.

It's still not clear how the students acquired the test questions, but UCF spokesman Grant Heston says it appears they accessed them online.
