Abstract
Cheating is regarded as a means to a profitable end and a way to obtain the highest grades in the tests. Nowadays, the educational system has been incraesingly growing tolerant of cheating with few punishments. An academic dishonesty becomes a problem encountered by the Indonesian students at tertiary level. It is the fact that cheating during the assessment processes has been reported by the invigilators as well as the teachers in several cases. Few researches have been conducted to see the reasons behind that. Results of this survey have indicated that some students do not see cheating as a serious offense. This study explains the reasons of cheating occurring among Jenderal Soedirman University students through a forum group discussion of cheating within Javanese culture as the major culture of the students. There are four aspects of the Javanese characters, namely gotongroyong, sadulur, damaiand rasa kekeluargaan as a frame to see the rationale behind academic dishonesty. A questionnaire of 88 undergraduate students of English Language and Literature Study Program of Faculty of Social and Political Science at Jenderal Soedirman University was undertaken to see the prevalence of these aspects when students engaged in cheating
