A Culture of Honesty Earns a Degree of Respect

Student Honor Code

The academic honesty policy of the university is supplemented (not replaced) by an Honor Code which was adopted by the Student Government Association and approved by the University Council May 1, 1997, and provides: "I will be academically honest in all of my academic work and will not tolerate academic dishonesty of others."  All students agree to abide by this code by signing the UGA Admissions Application.

The goals of this academic honesty policy are to:

  1. Foster a culture of academic honesty in the university community.
  2. Maintain the integrity and academic reputation of the university.
  3. Process fairly and consistently matters related to academic dishonesty.
