Student Honor Code | Academic Honesty Policy

All students must follow the UGA Student Honor Code, which states: “I will be academically honest in all of my academic work and will not tolerate academic dishonesty of others.” All students agree to abide by this code by signing the UGA Admissions Application.

Academic Honesty at UGA provides information on UGA’s policy and procedures regarding academic honesty. Any sanction imposed for violation of the academic honesty policy is supported by the Morehead Honors College and may result in probation or dismissal from the Honors College.

Good Standing

In order to remain in good standing in the Morehead Honors College, students must maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.4 and a minimum Honors GPA of 3.3. Students must also complete Honors courses on a regular basis to show progress toward graduation with Honors.

The following A-F graded courses are included in determining Honors course credit and GPA for good standing:

  • All courses identified by an “H” suffix
  • All courses beginning with an “HONS” prefix
  • Graduate courses at the 6000 level or higher
  • Approved Honors Option courses
  • Approved Honors Internship courses
  • CURO Research and Thesis courses with the “R” suffix
  • Certain non-Honors courses found in the Honors course list (e.g., PHYS 1211)

All Honors course grades of A-F, regardless of category, are included in your Honors GPA.

Probation

A student whose cumulative GPA falls below 3.4, but is at least a 3.0, will be placed on probation in the Morehead Honors College. Students on probation may remain in the Honors College as long as each semester’s GPA is at least 3.5, until the cumulative GPA is raised to 3.4, at which time the student returns to good standing. A student on probation whose semester GPA is less than 3.5 will be dropped from the Honors College and must have a 3.4 cumulative GPA before being eligible to petition for readmission. Students on probation are limited to one Honors course per term.

Students who do not complete an Honors course for two consecutive semesters (not including summer semester) will be placed on probation for non-participation.

Any questions about probation may be emailed to honors@uga.edu.

Removal from Honors

A student whose cumulative GPA falls below a 3.0 will be dropped from the Morehead Honors College without a probationary period. These students may apply for readmission to the Honors College when their cumulative GPA is at least 3.4.

A student who is on probation for non-participation who fails to complete the necessary number of Honors courses will be removed from the Morehead Honors College.

Any questions about removal from the Morehead Honors College may be emailed to honors@uga.edu.

READMISSION

Any student who has been removed from the Morehead Honors College because their cumulative GPA fell below a 3.0 or because they failed to receive a 3.5 for the semester while on probation can be readmitted to the Honors College once their cumulative GPA reaches a 3.4. Students who wish to be readmitted after their cumulative GPA reaches a 3.4 must email honors@uga.edu with the following information: their name, 81#, semester of removal, and a statement confirming their cumulative GPA has reached a 3.4. Students will be emailed a confirmation of their readmission; students will not be considered readmitted to the Morehead Honors College until they have received this email.

Any questions about readmission may be emailed to honors@uga.edu.
