Q. How do I change the APA style header for the second page so it doesn't look like the title page?


To set the Header so the 2nd page is different in Microsoft Word:

1. Double click at the top of the document or Click on Insert.  Select Header.  Select Edit Header.

2. Check the box for Different First Page so that you can still include the words Running head on the first page, but take them off all subsequent pages.

3.  If you want to set the Page Number, that option is there to the right of Header.

Another option is to visit APA help, and use the APA 6th Edition: Assignment Template, which is a perfectly formatted APA paper- all you have to do is type over the existing text!
