Please familiarize yourself with the Honor Code.

Every student who applies and is accepted by Emory College agrees, as a condition of attendance, to abide by the provisions of the Honor Code as long as he or she remains a student at Emory. By his or her continued attendance at Emory, a student reaffirms his or he pledge to adhere to the provisions of the Honor Code. Students who violate the Honor Code are subject to a letter grade of "F" in the course in question, suspension, dismissal, or a combination of these sanctions and/or other sanctions as appropriate.
