A 26-year-old woman is facing possible criminal charges after allegedly impersonating an SFU student in order to write an exam for her.

Police were called to the university’s Burnaby campus just before 12:30 p.m. last Thursday, according to Burnaby RCMP.

Officials at the university alleged a woman had been caught using forged documents to take an exam for a student, police said.

The 26-year-old was taken into custody, according to police, and now faces charges for possession of forged documents.

She has since been released on a promise to appear.

SFU sent out a letter to students about the incident Tuesday.

The letter alleges the suspect had attempted to write the exam for the student in exchange for money.
