GCU Style Guides and Templates

APA style can be tricky. To assist you with learning proper APA formatting, GCU has developed a graduated system of style requirements to help students in lower-division courses with the fundamentals of proper referencing and formatting. The requirements increase based upon the level of the courses in which you are enrolled. Use the APA Style Guides and Templates to help ensure you are properly referencing and formatting your work. You can access the templates here, or through your online classroom.
