What is the UCF Creed? 

The UCF Creed is the value system our students, faculty, and staff share, making it just as important that they practice honesty, integrity and respect, not only for themselves but for others as well. The creed was also put in place to discourage behavior that threaten the freedom and respect for all members of UCF.  From a statistical standpoint, past creeds and honor codes at various universities have shown on average a ten percent decrease in students cheating on exams.
