XVIII. Academic Honor Code

Academic Honor Code

The Academic Honor Code is a student initiative that became an official Institute policy in 1996. The objective of the Academic Honor Code is to increase academic integrity and strengthen trust in the Georgia Tech community. All students are required to sign an agreement acknowledging their awareness of the Academic Honor Code. They are strongly encouraged to seek a full understanding of their instructors' expectations regarding academic honor.

The Academic Honor Code is available in the Georgia Tech Policy Library.

The Honor Agreement

"Having read the Georgia Institute of Technology Academic Honor Code, I understand and accept my responsibility as a member of the Georgia Tech community to uphold the Honor Code at all times. In addition, I understand my options for reporting honor violations as detailed in the Code."
