Academic writing must meet the guidelines of an academic style guide as well as expectations of academic integrity.

The most common academic style guides in use are APA, MLA, and Chicago. UAGC students are expected to use the formatting and style guidelines from the current edition of the APA Style Manual for all academic writing, unless your assignment directions state otherwise.

Meeting expectations of academic integrity involves performing academic research, properly citing sources, avoiding all forms of plagiarism, including your own original academic voice, and using tutoring responsibly.

The following guides can support you with APA, academic integrity, and understanding plagiarism.
