Honor Code

Dear First Year Students,

The Spring 2021 semester is probably different from what we all expected, and we’re all experiencing new and challenging circumstances and environments. One of the things that hasn’t changed is our commitment to academic integrity and the Gettysburg College Honor Code.

Best regards,
Bryn Werley, Co-Chair
Matt Simmers, Co-Chair
Blake Gill, Secretary

In May of 1957, the Faculty approved in principle an Honor Code and accepted in fact a Constitution for the Honor Code at Gettysburg College. With these measures, the Faculty delegated to the Honor Commission responsibility for the regulation of student academic conduct. The final responsibility for the regulation of student conduct remains with the Faculty.

The current version of the Honor Code is the result of substantial revision approved by the Faculty, Honor Commission, and Student Senate in 2006, and revision of sections 4.4-5 and 6.5 in Spring 2014.
