Honor System

Honor at Carolina

For more than 130 years, Carolina students have been entrusted to hold each other accountable for maintaining a just and safe community. As such, when necessary, students, in partnership with faculty and, at times, professional staff, both adjudicate alleged violations and administer disciplinary sanctions to students found responsible for violating the Honor Code.

About the Honor Code

The Honor Code is found  in the Instrument of Student Judicial Governance.  The Honor Code lies at the heart of the culture of the Carolina community, and it addresses not only academic dishonesty but also issues including, but not limited to, student conduct affecting persons and property both on and off the Carolina campus.
