Academic Expectations

At UNCW, academic integrity is a core value. When students join our community, they pledge to uphold and be subject to the Honor Code. It is designed to help every member of the UNCW community appreciate the high value placed on academic integrity and the means that will be employed to ensure its preservation. In addition, when new students join the academic community at UNCW, they commit to uphold the Honor Pledge. When you visit the Fisher Student Center, find your signature on the Honor Pledge Banner near the stairs. We are glad you are a part of this tradition at UNCW. 

UNCW Honor Pledge

"As a student at the University of North Carolina Wilmington, I am committed to honesty and truthfulness in academic inquiry and in the pursuit of knowledge. I pledge to uphold and promote the UNCW Student Academic Honor Code."
