The Honor Code

“As a Wellesley College student, I will act with honesty, integrity, and respect. In making this commitment, I am accountable to the community and dedicate myself to a life of honor."

Wellesley College honor system is central to our mission as a liberal arts college. It is a system of mutual trust and respect upon which we base our community. Honor is the foundation of teaching, learning, and community life at Wellesley, and all students share responsibility for preserving this foundation.
