APA Citation Style, 6th edition: Web page from a University site

A guide to help users create citations using APA (American Psychological Association) style, 6th edition.

Web page from a University site (p. 206)

Helpful Tip
  • When citing sources that you find on the Internet you only need to include a retrieval date if the information you viewed is likely to change over time (p. 192).  If you reference an article from a news source (e.g., CNN, NBC, Washington Post) or a site that may experience continuous updates, you would then need to include a retrieval date.
