2. Margins
Top: 1 inch, left: 1.5 inches (for binding), right: 1 inch, bottom: 1 inch
3. Pagination
Page numbers should be entered at the bottom-center of the page.
Each item in the preface section must start from the beginning of a page.
For page numbers, use lowercase Roman numerals. The title page is "i" and the approval page is "ii." However, DO NOT enter page numbers on these two pages and start from page number "iii," "iv," "v," "vi"...
DO NOT enter a page number on the abstract page, either.
Enter page numbers for the body text and reference section in a row with Arabic numerals (1, 2, 3...).
4. Spacing
For proofreading, double space the body text and single space the remaining parts. As for the final version, follow the same format.
When you pass the final thesis review and are authorized to receive a master's degree, reformat the entire thesis to single-space and resubmit it for archiving.
5. Printing, Signature and Archiving
For the theses, print on both sides of paper.
One original copy of the theses with referees' signatures on the approval page shall be submitted to Student Affairs Division. The electronic version shall be archived to the Library.
