Student Paper Setup Guide

Title Page

Quick Facts

"Margins: 1-in. margins on all sides of the page (top, bottom, left, and right).

Font: 12- point Times New Roman

Line spacing:Use double-spacing for the entire paper (including block quotations and the reference list). Do not add blank lines before or after headings. Do not add extra spacing between paragraphs.

Paragraph alignment and indentation: Align paragraphs of text to the left margin. Leave the right margin ragged. Do not use full justification. Indent the first line of every paragraph of text 0.5 in. using the tab key or the paragraph-formatting function of your word-processing program.

Page numbers: Put a page number in the top right corner of every page, including the title page or cover page, which is page 1. Student papers do not require a running head on any page."
