The Lyon College Honor Pledge

“I will abstain from all fraud in academic work. I will neither give nor receive aid on any form of test or assigned work where such aid is prohibited, nor tolerate this conduct in any member of the community. I will deal responsibly with such acts when I observe them. By my conduct and influence, I will endeavor to build a high standard of honesty and truthfulness in all academic Work.”

The Honor System is maintained and administered by students through the Honor Council, made up of 22 students. The purpose of the Honor Council is to foster a spirit of honor on campus and to hear and act upon alleged violations of the Honor Code.

The Honor Council is empowered to try students who are accused of Honor Code violations and, in the event of a conviction, to impose penalties up to and including expulsion from the College.

The full text of the Honor Code is found in the Student Handbook.
