According to The MLA Style: Formatting a Research Paper webpage you do not include a title page with your paper.

Instead, you will include a Header and Title:

  • The header will include your name, the professor's name, course number, and date (in day month year format).  
  • The title should be centered and you should follow capitalization rules found in the MLA Handbook (see pages 67-68). 

To see a sample of how a header and title should look like please visit the Formatting a Research Paper page.  You can also download a sample MLA paper from the Online Writing Center.
