Honor Code

The campus is governed by an Honor Code that gives our students a lot of freedom but demands accountability.

It states that “every student is responsible for maintaining his or her integrity and the integrity of the College community in all academic matters and in all affairs concerning the community.”

The Honor Code sets the tone for life on campus. Students have 24-hour access to labs, studios and workshops.

Students respect and accept each other’s differences and are not pressured to do something uncomfortable in order to fit in.

Thanks to the Honor Code, Harvey Mudd College faculty have the confidence to regularly assign timed, take-home exams or closed-note homework assignments without worrying about students cheating.
