Your Last Name 1 First Name Last Name Teacher’s Name Period ___ Due Date Word Count: ______ Formatting for MLA Papers: Microsoft Word Remember that everything is double-spaced when you follow MLA formatting. Set the spacing (under Format, Paragraph) before you begin typing, and you never have to hit the return (Enter) more than once. Do not underline your essay’s title and do not use any fancy fonts. Times New Roman is the standard (and preferred) font and must be size 12. Do not use title pages. This first page has everything needed to identify the paper. Please include the word count on each essay. To find the word count, click on “Tools” at the top of your screen, and select “Word Count” from the pull-down menu. In the box that appears, find the word count number and include that number in your header. Each essay should be at least _____ words (about ____ pages). It is okay if you go over that amount. Notice that the page numbers are in the upper right-hand corner with the writer’s last name. To insert page numbers click on “View” at the top of the screen, click on “Header and Footer” from the pull-down menu. When the small toolbar appears change the alignment on the standard toolbar at the top of the screen to “right align.” Then type your last name, hit the space bar once, and click on the page number icon on the header toolbar. Click “Close” on the header toolbar, and you are all set. If you follow this format you will have a beautiful looking paper; the rest is up to you.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
