Honor Code

Honor Code PledgeSweet Briar women do not lie, cheat, steal, or violate the rights of others. That is the contract among all members of the Sweet Briar community.

Our honor code, supporting learning since the early 1900s, fosters credibility and academic development. Violations of the honor code are adjudicated through the honor system and can result in warning, probation, honor probation, suspension, dismissal and/or expulsion. Each offense is judged individually as to its severity and appropriate sanction.

Students learn more about the honor code during orientation. An honor code test is administered that students must successfully complete.

For more information, see the Student Handbook.
