ATLANTA -- A former Georgia Tech student pleaded guilty Wednesday to accessing the university's grading system and changing some of his grades.

Shayan Panjwani pleaded guilty to two counts of computer trespass.

The Georgia Attorney General's Office said Panjwani illegally accessed Georgia Tech's grading system and gave himself higher marks in two classes. A graduate student noticed the change and reported it to the school.

Panjwani immediately confessed to changing his grades, according to Attorney General's Office spokeswoman Lauren Kane. He was sentenced to two years probation and ordered to pay a $1,000 fine.

Panjwani is no longer enrolled at Georgia Tech.
