Academic dishonesty behaviors are leading common ethical problems of higher education. When the factors resulting in academic dishonesty are observed, it is seen that the various individual features predict the academic dishonesty. There are some studies telling that there is a relationship between academic procrastination, which is one of the characteristics mentioned above, and tendency of academic dishonesty. In related researches, it has been reported that there is low and positive and negative correlation between these variables. However, the studies are conducted with limited sample and the number of the studies in which the pre-service teachers participate as work group is quite low. In this context, it has been thought that expected consequences of this study, which will reveal the relationship between academic procrastination and academic dishonesty tendencies will bring new viewpoints to studies in the body of the literature and it will contribute to the teacher training system.

The aim of this study is to investigate the relationship between academic procrastination and academic dishonesty tendency of pre-service teachers who study at Dumlupınar University. In accordance with the main aim, the following questions are intended to be answered:
(1) What is the level of procrastination of the pre-service teachers?
(2) What is level of academic dishonesty tendency of the pre-service teachers?
(3) Do the procrastination and academic dishonesty tendency of pre-service teachers differentiate significantly according to their gender, grades, study field of high school and academic scores?
(4) Is there any relationships between the academic procrastination and academic dishonesty tendency of the pre-service teachers?
