Mississippi State University has an approved Honor Code that applies to all students. The code is as follows:
As a Mississippi State University student I will conduct myself with honor and integrity at all time. I will not lie, cheat, or steal, nor will I accept the actions of those who do.
Upon accepting admission to Mississippi State University, a student immediately assumes a commitment to uphold the Honor Code, to accept responsibility for learning, and to follow the philosophy and rules of the Honor Code. Student will be required to state their commitment on examinations, research papers, and other academic work. Ignorance of the rules does not exclude any member of the MSU community from the requirements or the processes of the Honor Code.
