Graduate Honor System

The Graduate Life Center just before dawn

The Graduate Honor Code establishes a standard of academic integrity and  demands a firm adherence to a set of values with respect to the intellectual efforts of oneself and others.

Compliance with the Graduate Honor Code requires that all graduate students exercise honesty and ethical behavior in all their academic pursuits at the university.
