Honor Code


By enrolling in a course on SSBM, you are joining a special worldwide community of learners. The aspiration of SSBM is to provide anyone with an internet connection access to courses from the best universities and institutions in the world and to provide our learners the best educational experience internet technology enables. You are a part of the community that will help SSBM achieve this goal. SSBM depends upon your motivation to learn the material and to do so with honesty and academic integrity. In order to participate in SSBM, you must agree to the Honor Code below and any additional terms specific to a course or program. This Honor Code, and any additional terms, will be posted on each course website.

By enrolling in an SSBM course or program, 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 learner performance.

If you are found in violation of the Terms of Service or Honor Code, you may be subject to one or more of the following actions:

Receiving a zero or no credit for an assignment;
Having any certificate earned in the course or program withheld or revoked;
Being unenrolled from a course or program; or
Termination of your use of the SSBM Site.
Additional actions may be taken at the sole discretion of SSBM and SSBM Member course providers.
No refunds will be issued in the case of any corrective action for such violations.

Honor Code violations will be determined at the sole discretion of SSBM Members. You will be notified if a determination has been made that you have violated this Honor Code and you will be informed of the corresponding action to be taken as a result of the violation.

Please note that we review and may make changes to this Honor Code from time to time. Any changes to this Honor Code will be effective immediately upon posting on this page, with an updated effective date. By accessing the SSBM Site after any changes have been made, you signify your agreement on a prospective basis to the modified Honor Code and any changes contained therein. Be sure to return to this page periodically to ensure familiarity with the most current version of this Honor Code.
