COLUMBUS, OH (WTOL) - The Ohio State University is accusing 83 undergraduate students of cheating on classwork using a group messaging app.

The school said the students violated the code of conduct for "unauthorized collaboration of graded assignments."

A university spokesman says the use of group messaging apps is permitted, but is subject to the same rules as any other communication.

Potential penalties range from warnings to expulsion.
