This study examines the factors influencing academic fraud prevention among the accounting students. Specifically, this study examines whether five factors namely, identification verification, monitoring, restroom visits procedures, punishment and embarrassment can prevent academic fraud. Using questionnaire survey on accounting students, this study shows that out of the five selected factors, monitoring and punishment significantly and positively influence academic fraud prevention. On the other hand, the other three factors namely, verification identification, restroom visits procedures and embarrassment do not significantly influence academic fraud prevention among the accounting students. The findings in this study shed some lights on the factors influencing academic fraud prevention among the accounting students. This study contributes to the university as well as other related parties in strategizing better controls to prevent academic fraud. This in turn will improve the quality of their graduates and eventually the image of universities.
