Formatting and Citations:

• Word documents only (Microsoft Word) – No other formats will be accepted (no PDFs, no Google

Docs/Sharepoint links, etc).

• Three pages minimum, double-spaced, APA format (template provided). Title page and reference page do

not count towards page requirement. By three pages, I mean three full, complete pages (top to

bottom) written with the requested formatting.

• Arial 11-point font (NOT Arial Nova), 1-inch margins, aligned left, paragraph format (no bullet points)

• APA style citations (in-text and reference page) are required. Everything must be cited and written in

your own words. NO DIRECT QUOTES.

Submissions should be made via Blackboard. Emailed submissions will not be accepted. Plagiarism

checker will be enabled for all submissions (SafeAssign). Do NOT submit someone else’s work,

information copied directly from the internet, textbook, etc. This is plagiarism – any instances of

academic misconduct will be reported to the Dean of Students. Submitting AI (Artificial Intelligence)

generated papers is a form of academic misconduct. If you did not physically write the paper yourself, it

is not “your work.”
