Honor Code & Academic Integrity

As a member of the Notre Dame community, I acknowledge that it is my responsibility to learn and abide by principles of intellectual honesty and academic integrity, and therefore I will not participate in or tolerate academic dishonesty.

As we begin the 2020-2021 academic year, I want to invite you to remember the Honor Code pledge, to which incoming students sign their names before their first year on campus. I also wanted to remind you that our commitment to academic integrity remains, whether your classes are meeting in a classroom setting or online. 

Whatever the circumstances, you should make sure that you follow your professors' instructions regarding collaboration, citation, and the use of online resources. If you have questions about what is allowed, please ask them. If you have questions about faculty, staff, or student responsibilities the Honor Code, you can read more in the Procedural Appendix to our Honor Code, found here.

One final note: with the proliferation and use of tutoring websites and other online study aids, we have seen a rise in the illegitimate use of these resources. When working on assignments and assessments remotely, you should make sure you have your professor’s explicit permission to use them. 

With best wishes for a safe and healthy fall semester,
