Thank You the example has been very helpful. I start classes online thursday and I have a sample paper due this weekend for my orientation credit. I have never used this style. I haven’t written a paper in over 25 yrs. I was given written instructions but to see some type of visual is awesome. Thank you again!

Thanks, it helps a lot. I was wondering where goes your name on the paper, because I just started to take classes by internet so I don’t really have a teacher to teach me how do this kind of papers and you did it, God bless you!

This information was very helpful, thank you! I utilized the cover format with the university name at the top as it looks much more professional than the second. I like to have as much information on the cover page as is allowed. 🙂

I was trying to format my cover page in MLA. On the page about the cover page it says to have the university name at the top, the title 1/3 down, and the name, course/teacher/date information at the bottom. In the sample, there is no university name at the top, the title is 1/3 down, the name is in the middle of the page, and the course/teacher/date information at the bottom. The discrepancies are confusing and I suggest correcting this. Otherwise the site was very helpful.

Thanks, Angie! If your teacher doesn’t provide any instructions, you can use any of those two samples. Please do confirm with your teacher to make sure. Take care!
