The Mason Honor Code

Academic integrity is a trait that must be practiced all the time.  It requires constant attention, and it should hold a place of importance in the minds of all people.  George Mason University’s Honor Code is an agreement made by all members of our community to not  “cheat, steal, plagiarize, or lie in matters related to your academic work.”   Having an Honor Code allows us to ensure that every student does his/her own work.  It is here to protect ALL students from others who may want to gain an inappropriate academic advantage over them.  You can find the complete Mason honor code in the  Mason catalog  .
