The title page is often optional and not counted in the total page count for page 1 must always contain the text of your document. For this reason, the formatting for the title page is often dictated by the instructor, which you need to follow to get the grade you desire. Nonetheless, you will see a sample below as to the general practice in making a MLA title page as illustrated in Figure 2 and 3. It should be noted that when a title page is required, the first page makes an adjustment by omitting the usual header that bears your name. As a general rule, use the same font and font size that you used in the text for your title page. Moreover, there is no need to italicize or specially mark your titles unless you are citing a work like in the samples below.
