Course Paper Guidelines

All course papers should be typed and in thesis form, unless otherwise designated by the professor. Course papers should conform to the standards outlined in A Manual for Writers of Term Papers, Theses, and Dissertations, Sixth Edition, Revised (1996) by Kate L. Turabian, The MLA Style Sheet or APA Style (at the discretion of the professor, primarily required for MAC/MFT courses) or any additional instructions authorized by the faculty.

Physical copies of all class reports, papers and other materials which are turned in for a grade in a given class become the property of the professor, though in most cases these are returned to the student. The content and/or ideas of such documents, however, remain the intellectual property of the author and may not be copied or used without permission of the author.

Papers turned in as class assignments, which are being returned to students, will ordinarily be returned to students in class, via email, placed in the student’s campus mailbox, or in some case via the online classroom site. (Questions about student mailbox assignments can be directed to the Student Services office). To facilitate the timely return of student papers, students are asked to always print their mailbox number on the front page of every assignment.
