The Honor Code

The Honor Councils developed an Honor Code that affirms the University’s dedication to integrity and trust. The Honor Code Statutes are updated annually in order to meet the demands of a constantly changing body of students, faculty, and staff.

There are a total of seven Honor Code violations:

  1. Cheating
  2. Lying
  3. Plagiarism
  4. Academic Theft
  5. Registration Irregularity
  6. Disclosure of Honor Council Information
  7. Failure to Report an Honor Code Violation (Toleration)

Specific information about the honor process can be found in the Student Guide to the Honor System, which is also updated annually.
