Abstract

Academic fraud is a serious problem related to integrity and ethics that occurs in every educational institution. This study aims to identify the causes of academic fraud behavior among students at state universities in Magelang based on the Pentagon theory of fraud dimensions. This research is a qualitative study using a case study approach. Data were collected by means of observation and interviews with 15 respondents of undergraduate and diploma level students. Based on the results of the study, it can be concluded that the act of student academic cheating is caused by five main aspects, namely pressure, opportunity, rationalization, ability and finally the student's personal arrogance. A student does not commit academic fraud if one aspect is not fulfilled. Some actions that must be taken to minimize fraud are improving the assessment system and examination supervision, improving the quality of the lecture process, establishing strict sanctions, evaluating regular academic guidance and guidance, and also organizing non-academic programs to improve the balance of IQ, EQ. , SQ, and AQ.
