About APA

Harrison College uses the 6th ed. Concise Rules of APA Style (2010). This writing style, from the American Psychological Association, creates a framework for formatting papers and citing reference sources that will be used for all classes at Harrison College.

The purpose of this online guide is to allow for a more consistent style format for our current faculty and student population. You will find information on the three components of APA - formatting, in-text citations, and the references page.
