The Wake Forest Undergraduate Honor Code (the “Honor Code”) is grounded in a fundamental commitment from each member of our community to honesty and integrity. Adherence to the Honor Code enables our community to live and to work together with a shared sense of trust and respect. Violations of the Honor Code are treated with the utmost seriousness because they undermine both personal integrity and community standards. Specific offenses under the Honor Code include cheating, plagiarism, stealing, and deception in both academic and non-academic settings.
Alleged academic violations of the Honor Code will be heard by and in accordance with procedures set by the Honors and Ethics Council.
Alleged non-academic violations of the Honor Code are Code of Conduct Violations and will be heard by and in accordance with procedures set by the Office of the Dean of Students.
