APA Requirement

American Psychological Association (APA) is the writing format that will be used predominantly in all courses.  It is important to learn how to properly format scholarly work as this enhances communication and provides a standardized approach to scholarly writing.  APA includes writing style and format related to grammar, sentence and paragraph structure, headings, title page, quotes and referencing.

Complete APA formatting cannot be done within Canvas.  When posting in discussions, blogs, wikis, and other Canvas tools, you will not be able to do hanging indents, double spacing, or page headers/footers.  However, it is still required to provide correct citations and references.

All students are required to have the following textbook:

Additional APA Resources can be found at the University Writing Center's website.

Note: The APA format used in the syllabus and in Canvas may not be correct.  It is modified to give you more information on the resource and to meet Canvas guidelines.

Earning Grades

Grades will be posted within 96 hours of the due date.  Point assignments, due dates, learning activities, assessments, and other information specific to each course are outlined in the course syllabus.

Assessments contributing to a student's final grade in a course can be viewed in the course syllabus and the grade book within the learning management system. Please refer to the CGHS section  of the A.T. Still University Catalog for final grade definitions.
