Students are required to respect the ethical standards for academic honesty established by the Office for Student Judicial Affairs (P202 Peabody Hall, 392-1261).
The University of Florida Student Honor Code
The University of Florida student body voted in the Fall of 1995 to approve the following Student Honor Code:
We, the members of the University of Florida community, pledge to hold ourselves and our peers to the highest standards of honesty and integrity.
- All students admitted to the University of Florida have signed a statement of academic honesty committing themselves to be honest in all academic work and understanding that failure to comply with this commitment will result in disciplinary action.
- The statement is a reminder to uphold your obligation as a UF student, and to be honest in all work submitted and all exams.
- Work submitted must be produced individually by each student, except for tasks explicitly assigned to a group by the instructor.
- No consultation among students is allowed during exams, unless otherwise stated in an explicit fashion by the instructor.
- All work submitted individually in the form of exams, homework, computer projects, etc., is subject to the following required or implied pledge:
On my honor, I have neither given nor received unauthorized aid in completing and submitting this assignment.
Sanctions for Honor Code Violations
- Since ethical behavior in science and engineering is equal in relevance in significance to specific knowledge of technical matters, the instructor has the obligation to impose sanctions on students who commit ethical violations. Sanctions can be established according to the standards imposed by the Office for Student Judicial Affairs (P202 Peabody Hall, 392-1261).
- Official Sanctions issued by the Office of Student Judicial Affairs will become permanently noted in the student’s official transcript.
