The top and bottom margins are set to 1 inch. The left and right margins are set to 1.25 inches. Page numbers fall within this margin and must be at least 1/2 inch from the edge of the page.
Typing of the document uses one side of the page only, double spaced, with a 12 point size professional typeface, such as Times New Roman, Arial, or Courier. Only one size and one style of type may be used.
Order of the Pages and Numbering Watch on YouTube
Preliminary pages are numbered using lower case Roman numerals (ii, iii, iv, etc.). Pages of the main text are numbered using standard Arabic numerals. All pages, including appendices are counted and numbered. Watch on YouTube how to split pagination.
