Honor System

If you enroll in a Self-paced Course, you are responsible for obeying and supporting an honor system that prohibits lying, cheating, or stealing in relation to the academic practices of constituent institutions of the University of North Carolina. The honor system also requires you to refrain from conduct that significantly impairs the welfare or the educational opportunities of others in the University community. You are expected to do your own work in all aspects of your course.

An especially serious Honor Code violation is plagiarism. The UNC-Chapel Hill Honor System has found that 90 percent of the cases brought to its attention involve plagiarism. Please read the items below and make sure you understand how to avoid plagiarism before you enroll in a course.

Your enrollment in a course certifies that you agree to adhere to the honor system of the crediting institution.
