Honor Code

BYU exists to provide a university education in an atmosphere consistent with the principles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This environment is preserved through adherence to a code of conduct called the Honor Code that reflects those ideals.

Initiated by students in 1949, the Honor Code emphasizes being honest, living a chaste and virtuous life, abstaining from alcohol and tobacco, using clean language and following other values encompassed in the doctrines of the Church of Jesus Christ. The code is supplemented by additional guidelines on dress, grooming and housing.
