Basics of formatting an APA title page in Word

Like the rest of the APA paper, the title page has 1-inch margins on all sides and should be double-spaced.​ 

An APA title page has six required elements, each placed on a separate line and centered:​

  • Title of the paper​:

    • All major words capitalized

    • Bolded

    • Positioned in the upper-middle of the page (hit Enter 3-4 times)

    • Hit Enter twice so there is a blank line between the title and

  • Author name​ (your name)

  • Affiliation, or name of the college ​

  • Course number: Course Name​

  • Name of the instructor​

  • Date the paper is due​
