  • Unless otherwise directed by the course instructor, all work submitted is to be typed and printed or submitted via learning management system.
  • Title pages and plastic covers are not required unless requested by the course instructor.
  • Only double spaced and typewritten work with a 10-12-point font will be accepted.
  • Work should be submitted in black ink except when color graphs and documents are used.
