What is the edX Honor Code?

The edX Honor Code, together with edX’s Terms of Service and Privacy Policy, are agreements between you and edX. By using the edx.org site, you are agreeing to be legally bound by these agreements, whether or not you are a registered user.

Put simply, the edX Honor Code states that

By enrolling in an edX course, I agree that I will:

  • Complete all tests and assignments on my own, unless collaboration on an assignment is explicitly permitted.
  • Maintain only one user account and not let anyone else use my username and/or password.
  • Not engage in any activity that would dishonestly improve my results, or improve or hurt the results of others.
  • Not post answers to problems that are being used to assess student performance.

You’ll find the entire edX honor code here. Each course might also have specific agreements for learner collaboration and discussion.
