Senior Project Formatting Guide

General Guidelines

  • Margins should be set at 1 inch.
  • Use Times New Roman or Arial font, set at 12 pt.
  • Set line spacing at 1.5. (Tip: Keyboard shortcut is CTRL+5)
  • Have the campus print shop bind two copies of your senior project with comb binders – so they can be taken apart easily for copying. These copies are to be handed in to the department secretary, Lin Sutley.

Any other format settings are only acceptable upon consent of comp advisor.

If you have any questions, contact department secretary, Lin Sutley.
