Honor Code

BYU operates under an Honor Code. Each student, faculty, and staff member agrees to uphold the values of the honor code. Visiting students for competitions may benefit by gaining an understanding of this unique aspect of our campus. 

“We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men ... If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things” (Thirteenth Article of Faith).

As a matter of personal commitment, students, faculty, and staff of Brigham Young University, Brigham Young University–Hawaii, Brigham Young University–Idaho, and LDS Business College are expected to demonstrate in daily living on and off campus those moral virtues encompassed in the gospel of Jesus Christ, and will
