Undergraduate Academic Honor Code

The Emory College undergraduate student body has voted to adopt the proposed Undergraduate Academic Honor Code and the Procedures of the Undergraduate Academic Honor Code, which would create a unified undergraduate honor code for Emory College, Goizueta Business School, Oxford College, and the School of Nursing when approved by all schools.

The revisions will take effect for Emory College on the first day of the fall semester (August 24, 2022), but may be implemented at a later date for any schools that are still awaiting approval. The Honor Council will send additional information to all faculty about the new code at the start of the fall semester, but faculty may review the new documents at the above links.
