Academic Honor Code

Honor Code Statement

Students and faculty at Smith are part of an academic community defined by its commitment to scholarship, which depends on scrupulous and attentive acknowledgement of all sources of information and honest and respectful use of college resources.

Smith College expects all students to be honest and committed to the principles of academic and intellectual integrity in their preparation and submission of course work and examinations. All submitted work of any kind must be the original work of the student who must cite all the sources used in its preparation.

Students voted to establish the academic honor system in 1944. The basis of the Academic Honor Code is articulated in Article XV of the SGA Constitution and Article XV of the SGA Bylaws.
