Honor Code

Dear First Year Students,

Welcome to Fall 2021! We are excited to be back on campus with you to begin a new chapter filled with opportunities and endless possibilities.

As you know, here at Gettysburg College academic and personal integrity are foundational to a dynamic and engaging educational experience. It is how we develop trusting relationships, hold our community together and accountable, and do great work! As a valued member of our community, we encourage you to learn more about the Honor Code, embrace achieving excellence with integrity, use available resources, and enjoy the journey.

Like you, we affirm our commitment to walk in academic and personal integrity.

Best regards,

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.
