I am a college student in the US.
Over a year ago, I took a course that moved online because of the pandemic. The course in question is a graduation requirement. The class's lack of exam proctoring made it easy to cheat and so I did. My cheating was never discovered but as time went on, I grew to deeply regret what I did. I've since sworn off cheating ever again. I felt and still feel incredibly guilty about it, so I tried to atone for what I've done by taking what was essentially a more difficult version of the course I cheated in and passed it without resorting to cheating. This course alone satisfies the same requirement that the previous course does, but the previous course is its prerequisite. Students who have not satisfied the course's prerequisites would not have been allowed to enroll in it.
My question is, would my credits for this higher level course be revoked if my cheating in its prerequisite course was ever discovered? I believe that the cheating I did in the prerequisite course would have been enough for me to fail it. If the cheating were to be discovered after I graduate, would it be grounds for degree revocation?
