For more than half a century, academic integrity has been maintained at Emory through the student-initiated and student-regulated Honor Code. The responsibility for maintaining a standard of unimpeachable honor in all academic work falls upon every individual who is a part of Emory University. Every student who chooses to attend Emory College agrees, as a condition of attendance, to abide by all provisions of the Honor Code as long as he or she remains a student in the college. By continued attendance in Emory College, students reaffirm their pledge to adhere to and uphold the provisions of the Honor Code.

The Undergraduate Code of Conduct outlines the expectations of the University for student behavior outside the classroom and details the process for resolution of alleged violations of non-academic misconduct. Through the Code, administered by the Office of Student Conduct in the Division of Campus Life, the University promotes the values of personal responsibility, active citizenship, and consideration for others. All students are expected to know and abide by the Code, available online at

The Honor Council, a body of at least ten annually appointed students, has responsibility for investigating and adjudicating all alleged violations of the Honor Code. Students found to have violated the Honor Code are subject to verbal reprimand, written reprimand, F in the course in question, suspension, dismissal, or a combination of these and other sanctions. Copies of the Honor Code are distributed and explained to new students and are available in the Emory College office, 218 White Hall, and online at
