Your essay should be typed and double-spaced on standard-sized paper (8.5" x 11"), with 1" margins on all sides.
Include page numbers flush right at the top of every page.
While the APA Publication Manual does not require a specific font, it should be accessible to all readers and used consistently throughout the paper.
Recommended fonts include sans serif fonts such as 11-point Calibri, 11-point Arial, and 10-point Lucida Sans Unicode as well as serif fonts such as 12-point Times New Roman, 11-point Georgia, and 10-point Computer Modern.
An APA student paper is composed of three sections: Title Page, Main Body, and Reference List.
Ask your instructor if an Abstract is required. This is not typical of student papers.
