Sara Schenirer has a zero-tolerance policy for any form of plagiarism, including self-plagiarism and artificial intelligence (AI).
A general plagiarism overview can be found here.
Self-plagiarism involves revising work that you have already submitted for a previous assignment. Even though this is your own work, it still constitutes plagiarism.
Utilizing AI is another form of plagiarism since you are presenting an idea or text as your own when AI technology created it for you.
Please note: tools such as Grammarly and Quillbot utilize AI technology and therefore may not be used. Our partner colleges offer tutoring services that can be found on your student portal.
Students who are found to have plagiarized will be deemed in violation of the college’s academic integrity policy. Consequences can include a failing grade and/or dismissal from the program.
To cite source material properly, APA (Psychology)/MLA (English) guidelines must be followed.

Many of your instructors will expect you to write your papers using APA format; a commonly-used standard in the academic world. We recognize that this may be difficult for you, so to help you meet this requirement, we’re sharing the following three short videos that students have found helpful in past semesters.
The first and second videos explain the APA standard, whereas the third will help you set up your Microsoft Word to automatically follow the APA standard. In addition, click here for the APA Formatting and Style Guide and here for an APA 7th Edition sample paper.
For your English classes, you will be required to use MLA formatting. Full instructions on citation in MLA can be found here.
