Wake Forest University upholds the ideals of honor and integrity. The Honor System is central to University life; its essence is a commitment by each person to do what is right and abide by community standards. Each student is pledged to be trustworthy in all matters, and a violation of that trust is an offense against the community as a whole. In the specific terms of the Honor Code, a student pledges in all phases of life not to cheat, plagiarize, engage in other forms of academic or social misconduct, deceive, or steal. The strength of the Honor System derives from the commitment of each and every student to uphold its ideals.
The undergraduate student conduct system is jointly administered by the Office of the Dean of the College, the Office of the Dean of Student Services, and the Judicial Council. Complete details are available at the Offices of the Dean of the College and the Dean of Students.
