Cambridge, MA (CNN) -- Students at Harvard University will head to class next week with something of a dark cloud hanging over the elite campus.

School administrators are investigating claims that nearly half the students in one undergraduate class may have cheated on their final exam.

The school newspaper says the incident happened in a government class entitled, "Introduction to Congress."

Lisa Sylvester saw a copy of the take-home exam, which laid out a specific set of rules for students to follow.

If it's determined students cheated, they could face disciplinary action including being kicked out of the school for a year.
