Academic Honor Code

Integrity and honor are central to the Rollins College mission to educate its students for responsible citizenship and ethical leadership. Rollins College requires adherence to a code of behavior that is essential for building an academic community committed to excellence and scholarship. Students, faculty, staff, and administration share the responsibility for building and sustaining this community.

Each student enrolling in Rollins College must become familiar with the Academic Honor Code. The College requires that students be able and willing to accept the rights and responsibilities of honorable conduct, both as a matter of personal integrity and as a commitment to the values to which the College community adheres. It is the responsibility of instructors to set clear guidelines for authorized and unauthorized aid in their courses. It is the responsibility of students to honor those guidelines and to obtain additional clarification if and when questions arise about possible violations of the Honor Code.

The Academic Honor Code was implemented in the fall 2006 semester and can be found in its entirety at this website. Be sure to become familiar with the Code, including the Honor Pledge and reaffirmation requirement, and your responsibility to uphold the Code as a member of the Hamilton Holt School community. If you have any questions, contact the Hamilton Holt School Academic Honor Council via Connie Holt at cholt@rollins.edu or 407-646-2232.
