You Li, 22, admitted Thursday that he changed his grades in December 2004. His official record, however, remained the same because he had accessed a backup file. Li said he used a software program to decrypt the password on the math department's computer system and then found a professor's password.
"I've made up my mind to have an honest life from now on," Li told U.S. District Judge Tena Campbell.
Federal prosecutors had asked for a year in prison, but Campbell said Li was remorseful and his crime was an aberration.
