The Pledge

 

The Pledge

“I pledge my honor that on this examination I have neither given nor received assistance not explicitly approved by the professor and that I have seen no dishonest work.”

The Honor System – Faculty Responsibilities

The Honor Council strongly recommends that the entire printed pledge, and not just the word ‘pledge,’ be on the last page of examination papers when the exam is handed out. There also must be the phrase “I have intentionally not signed the pledge.  (check only if appropriate)”

It is the responsibility of the professor to remind students verbally of the pledge before an examination. A visual reminder should be placed at the front of the room, as well.
