Two former Miami University students were charged with a first-degree misdemeanor of multiple counts of attempted, unauthorized use of a computer system Monday, according to Miami University Police Lt. Ben Spilman.

According to Claire Wagner, Miami director of communications, the students were charged for changing their grades, along with 50 other students' grades in an attempt to cover their tracks.

Spilman said the criminal charge was filed following an investigation and the students could face up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine on each account.

According to Spilman, he does not know how long it will take until a trial takes place and the students are prosecuted.

Wagner said the students have been dismissed and are no longer enrolled in the university, and now the university is taking a lot of steps for pretecting electronic grading systems, such as Niihka and Bannerweb.

"[Now we are] taking several other steps to increase security," Wagner said.
