Honors Program Integrity Guidelines and Pledge

Integrity Guidelines

Students taking Honors Program Integrity Guidelines and Pledge

All students enrolled in the School of Arts and Sciences Honors Program are responsible for upholding the highest standards of student behavior, as specified under the University Code of Student Conduct, including but not limited to strict adherence to the terms of the University’s Academic Integrity Policy.

Please make yourself familiar with the terms of the University Code of Student Conduct, including the University’s Academic Integrity Policy.

Please note that effective Fall 2008, a finding of “responsible” under the University Code of Student Conduct, including but not limited to violations of the University’s Academic Integrity Policy, is grounds for permanent dismissal from the School of Arts and Sciences Honors Program, pending review by the SASHP Committee, the Dean, and the Administrative Director of the SASHP.  The SASHP staff will regularly request disciplinary clearance information from Student Judicial Affairs to ascertain the status of ongoing disciplinary proceedings against SAS Honors students.  Such dismissal from the School of Arts and Sciences Honors Program will render the student permanently ineligible for subsequent reinstatement as a member of the School of Arts and Sciences Honors Program.
