File Format Conversion

Your assignments are graded using Microsoft Word Comments; therefore all assignments must be submitted in a file format that is compatible with Word Comments: Microsoft Word (docx), OpenOffice/LibreOffice (odt), or Rich-Text Format (rtf). Portable Document Format (pdf) and Apple Pages (pages) are not compatible with Word Comments.


As a student, you have access to Microsoft Office 365. Apache OpenOffice and LibreOffice are free. If you compose your assignment using Apple Pages (pages), or Google Docs, then you must convert it to Word format (docx) before submitting it. It is your responsibility to learn how to convert the file format. Here are some helpful links:

Note that proper MLA formatting may be lost in the conversion process. It is your responsibility to verify and correct MLA formatting before submitting.
