Title Page

For short papers, the heading is the same as MLA. Please click on the MLA tab for reference.

For long papers exceeding five pages*, papers require a title page. The title of the paper appears approximately five lines from the top. At the center of the page is the author's name. The bottom of the page includes the course code, the professor's name, and the due date. All should be center-aligned:



First Name Last Name


Course Code



The body of the paper will begin at the top of the next page without heading. Pagination and the author's last name appear in the header, right-aligned beginning with page 2.


The name of the citation form you are using appears at the top-center (i.e. Bibliography) of a new page. Entries are ordered alphabetically and are single-spaced with a space between new entries. If an entry exceeds one line, every line after the first should be indented ("hanging indent"). Pagination continues throughout.
