What are the course citation expectations?

Return to FAQ index

As outlined in the course Instruction Package:

At no time will any plagiarized materials be accepted. Cheating and plagiarism will be treated very seriously (i.e., academic discipline and dismissal). All resources used must be paraphrased, cited, and referenced to maintain academic integrity.

All responses must be in your own words and all references from the textbook, course materials or other reputable resources used, they must be paraphrased in your own words, include an in-text citation, and be included in a reference section at the end of each unit. Refrain from using direct quotes.

Each reference cited must appear in a reference list at the end of each unit or assignment and be in APA format.
