Do Study.com word counts for papers include works cited?
#1
I'm wondering if Study.com word counts for papers include works cited?

If they do it would help me out a lot as I need to finish two 1500+ word papers today so I can get my last class graded in time for WGU transcripts dept.

Don't worry about the word count and do follow the rubrics.

I have no idea but I was wondering this myself the other day

If you're that close that the works cited would push you over the edge, try just adding a BS paragraph summarizing something near the end

Thanks for the replies and suggestions.

I did just get a reply from Study.com:
"Reference lists and works cited pages do not count toward the word count for your written papers. The word count applies only to the original content that you write for the body of your papers."

I thought that was the case but it was worth a try.

Tbh the courses are just pass/fail so I wouldn't worry about it. I usually do a first draft and just hand it in. Even if you bomb the paper you should still pass

This.
You can look at the rubric before you write your paper. Sometimes, the "number of works cited" requirement is in the instructions, and the "number of words required" is in the instructions, but does not appear in the rubric (not part of your grade). Your grader will always follow the rubric, they are not professors with that kind of latitude. YMMV
