Application Honor Code

Emory University expects all admitted students to uphold the intellectual, ethical, and professional standards of the University and considers applications for admission and the materials attached to them subject to standards of academic honesty and integrity.  The Laney Graduate School reserves the right to rescind an offer of admission when an admitted student is found to have presented misleading or fraudulent information during the application process, and for other reasons.
