What is Bryant & Stratton's plagiarism policy?
The plagiarism policy is found in the student code of conduct section of the official catalog. It states: "the term 'plagiarism' includes, but is not limited to: (1) 'self-plagiarism,' which includes a student reusing significant, identical, or early identical portions of his or her own work without acknowledging that one is doing so or without citing the original work; (2) the use of purchased reports or other material represented as the student's work; (3) the use, by paraphrase or direct quotation, of the published or unpublished work of another person without full and clear attribution; and (4) the unattributed use of materials prepared by another person or agency engaged in the selling of term papers or other academic materials" (Bryant & Stratton College, 2022).

If I incorrectly cite in my paper, is that plagiarism?
Mistakes such as capitalization, punctuation, and incorrect formatting are not considered plagiarism. However, those mistakes could lead to a reduced grade on assignments.
May I use my research paper from another class and submit it for my current class?
No, you cannot submit a whole research paper because it is self-plagiarism. You may however cite a portion of your prior paper provided you (1) use the information to create new learning and (2) cite it in your References page. Here is a video about how to cite your sources in APA format.
