Chicago Footnote Referencing - Theology students: Citing yourself

This guide provides information on how to reference using the Chicago Footnote referencing style. PLEASE NOTE: counselling and education students should use APA referencing style.

Citing yourself

In very rare cases you might need to quote a short section (no more than 2 sentences) of an assignment you have previously submitted.  If this is the case you should treat the quotation as you would any other source and correctly cite this in a footnote as below.

First name Family Name, "Title of Essay or Summary of Essay Question" (UNIT CODE Essay, Morling College, Year of assignment).


Family Name, First name. "Title of Essay or Summary of Essay Question." UNIT CODE Essay, Morling College, Year of assignment.

Note:  if you have a required number of texts for a Bibliography, your own work does not contribute to this requirement.
