At the college, we originally adopted the APA Writing Style 6th Edition for the program beginning with Session #001 and ending with Session #016. Going forward and keeping with current APA requirements, we will adopt the APA Writing Style 7th Edition for the program beginning in fall 2022 with Session #017. Please click here to download guidelines for a brief overview.
Please see a sample APA Writing 6th Edition Case Study applicable to Session #001 to Session #016 only.
Here is a sample APA Writing 7th Edition Case Study for Session #017 and going forward.
Utilization of APA Style is required for all essays, case studies, and final capstone research papers.
President Normore and the senior faculty will be enforcing these APA policy guidelines throughout the program, particularly in your essays, case studies, and capstone paper.

Academic Integrity and Plagiarism: In support of academic integrity, we have adopted a plagiarism tool in our program writing assignments known as “PLAGIARISM CHECKER”. It includes the following: copying of one person’s work by another and claiming it as his or her own, false presentation of one’s self as the author or creator of a work, falsely taking credit for another person’s unique method of treatment or expression, falsely representing one’s self as the source of ideas or expression, or the presentation of someone else’s language, ideas or works without giving that person due credit. It is not limited to written works. Plagiarism is cause for formal program discipline (e.g., dismissal), and/or justification for an instructor to assign a lower grade or a failing grade in the course in which the plagiarism is committed.
