Referendum on the Honor Code

The Amherst College Honor Code was first implemented in 2004 by vote of the student body and the faculty. One of its provisions is that it be re-voted every four years - once during every student's time at the College - by both the student body and the faculty. The College Council has voted to submit the Honor Code, without changes, to the student body for renewal. The full text of the Honor Code is available on pages 23 to 35 of the Student Handbook.
