The University of Texas at Austin holds its students to a high standard that is grounded in the University Code of Conduct and Student Honor Code.

Code of Conduct

The core values of The University of Texas at Austin are learning, discovery, freedom, leadership, individual opportunity, and responsibility. Each member of the University is expected to uphold these values through integrity, honesty, trust, fairness, and respect toward peers and community.

Student Honor Code

As a student of The University of Texas at Austin, I shall abide by the core values of the University and uphold academic integrity.

In addition, Longhorns are expected to abide by all state, and federal laws, statutes and all regulations of the University of Texas System. Please see the Institutional Rules on Student Services and Activities, Chapter 11 for detailed descriptions of student discipline and conduct standards.

The university's standards of conduct are described in a variety of university policies, and links to those policies are outlined below.
