  • Word document
  • One to three pages long
  • Font: Times New Roman or Arial, size 12
  • Paper must follow APA format


There are three common types of plagiarism you need to be aware of as a student:

  • Recycling a paper; “double-dipping”; self-plagiarism: reusing a paper you have written for a previous course
  • Copying directly from a source without proper quotations or paraphrasing: when you try to pass something off as your own work
  • Not using proper citations

According to the Academic Integrity and Academic Dishonesty Handbook:

  • Your paper should have at least 80 percent of your own original thought, not “borrowed, paraphrased [or] quoted” from material pulled from the Internet, articles, journals, books, etc. Your thoughts, not someone else’s!
