This area of our site is designed to offer additional information that might be helpful for students, whether they want to apply for membership on the Honor Council, have been accused of an Honor System violation, or are completing a sanction reduction plan.

Helpful information when accused: A collection of links to other areas of our site that should be especially helpful for students facing an allegation.

Student Experiences: A collection of anonymous essays written by students who have been found in violation and have completed sanction reduction plans. These students frankly describe what led to their violation and how they’ve grown from the experience.
Student Consultants: Contact information for Honor Council student members willing to confidentially discuss anything regarding the Honor System.
Sanction Reduction: An overview of the process students can go through to reduce a sanction of “letter of censure” or “notation on transcript” on their permanent records.   Please note that, regarding graduate students, the Sanction Reduction Program is available only to those master’s degree students who were sanctioned via the policies and procedures of the Honor Council, not the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, beginning Fall Semester 2015.
