Q. How can I set up my computer for apa format?


To create a Word document that is in APA format and then use that document every time you need to write a paper, follow these steps:

  • Visit the APA Help guide
  • Click on APA 6th Edition: Assignment Template
  • Save it to your computer
  • Every time you want to use it, open this document--and before typing anything-- go to "Save As" and save a new copy with the title of your paper/project.
  • Then type in the new copy.

To set up your own paper in APA format, the APA Help guide also has the APA 6th Edition Formatting Guide for Baker College.

Thank you for using ASK US. For additional assistance, contact your Campus Library/ARC.
