The entire body of the essay is double-spaced, aligned left and new paragraphs are indented .5. Be sure not to include extra spaces between paragraphs and headings. There are some differences in APA style when writing college essays versus a graduate thesis. First off, in a college essay for this course, you do not need a running head or abstract. Begin your essay with an introductory paragraph that tells the reader what to expect and peaks their interest to read further. This can be done by establishing the purpose of the essay and making a provocative statement, including a quote, and/or posing a question. An introduction does not require a heading. In addition, a paragraph has a minimum of three sentences in academic writing. After you review this document, you can save a copy as is and another one to edit out the text and keep the format only saved as a template.

APA Style Headings
There are five heading levels in APA. Usually only Level 1 and 2 headings are necessary for the length of essays in this course. You may occasionally need Level 3 heading but rarely beyond that. Centered, Boldface, Uppercase and Lowercase (Level 1)

Left-aligned, Boldface, Uppercase and Lowercase (Level 2)
Indented, boldface, lowercase with period. (Level 3)
Indented, boldface, italicized, lowercase with period. (level 4) Indented, italicized, lowercase with period. (level 5)

Conclusion
Clearly end your essay with a paragraph signalling to the reader it is done. This can be accomplished by restating the purpose of the essay in a new way along with a sentence or two about how your essay fulfilled that purpose. Finally, add something that will make an impact on the reader; something they will remember related to your work. As always, this closing paragraph must have at least three sentences. If you are new to formal writing, you will need to plan for extra time to attend to the details. Just like learning any new skill, it gets easier and takes less time with practise.
