These rules are taken from the KU Office of Graduate Studies Thesis or Dissertation Formatting Guidelines. To see the full thesis or dissertation formatting requirements, visit https://graduate.ku.edu/etd-formatting-and-working-multimedia-files
Thesis and dissertation formatting requires different page numbering styles within the same document—for example, lower-case Roman numerals (i, ii, iii) for the front matter, and Arabic numerals (1, 2, 3) for the body of the document. To create the different page numbering styles as required, you will first set up the lowercase Roman numerals, then insert a section break, then set up the Arabic numerals. Step-by-step how-to instructions are included below for adding page numbers in Word 2010, Word 2013 or Word 2011 for Mac.
