The information on this page is provided in a PDF at the bottom of the page for you to save or print.
In Microsoft Word:
- Under the "Insert" tab (the second tab in the main tool bar, after “Home”), click on "Header," and select "Blank."

- Under the Header & Footer Tools Design Tab, check the box for Different First Page. Type in your first page header.
