SOUTH BEND, IN (CNN) – The University of Notre Dame is investigating the suspected academic dishonesty by several students, including four members of the school's football team.

The school things the student submitted papers and homework that were written for them by others.

"Earlier today we notified the NCAA that we were undertaken am internal investigation of discovered suspected academic dishonesty on the part of several students including four members of our football team, because of potential NCAA violations the student athletes will be held out of practice and competition until the conclusion of the ongoing investigation in accord with our honor codes process," University President Rev. John I. Jenkins, CSC.

Jenkins wanted to affirm that this incident is more than just an athletic issue – it's about academics.

“Let me make this really clear, this is not an athletic process. It's an academic process and the honor code process will go as it may and they will be - all involved - will be judged as students first. And as far as the team, that's a separate question,” Jenkins said.
