Academic Integrity

George Mason University maintains a strong commitment to high academic standards through the Honor Code agreement made by all members of the Mason community. This agreement commits all of us to not “cheat, steal, plagiarize, or lie in matters related to your academic work.”

The Department of Economics upholds a strict adherence to this Honor Code and holds all students accountable to this agreement. Students who are discovered to have violated this Honor Code will be reported to the Office of Academic Integrity.

The Honor Code Pledge reads as follows:

To promote a stronger sense of mutual responsibility, respect, trust, and fairness among all members of the George Mason University Community and with the desire for greater academic and personal achievement, we, the student members of the university community, have set for this Honor Code: Student Members of the George Mason University community pledge not to cheat, plagiarize, steal, or lie in matters related to academic work.

Students sign an agreement to adhere to the Honor Code on their application for admission to Mason and are responsible for being aware of the most current version of the code.
