Academic Code of Honor

Maintain your academic integrity.

The University of Notre Dame is a scholarly community in which faculty and students share knowledge, ideas, and creative works. Notre Dame’s Academic Code of Honor 2018 expresses our common commitment and moral responsibility to accurately represent the contributions of every individual.

The consequence of an Honor Code violation is serious. At a minimum, a student found responsible for an Honor Code violation usually fails the assignment in question. A more serious offense may result in failure of an entire course. More than one violation of Notre Dame’s Academic Code of Honor may result in suspension or dismissal.

A Student's Responsibility

As a member of our academic community, you must know and uphold Notre Dame's Academic Code of Honor. In June, you will be sent an email with instructions on how to begin the process for demonstrating your understanding of and commitment to this important community standard.
