Style Guide

West Virginia University uses the Associated Press Stylebook for all non-academic writing. It provides guidance about the use of capitalization, punctuation and more. WVU has created an online style guide, based on AP Style, to assist with things like academic and professional titles, and WVU-related words and expressions.

Extension Communications has put together a WVU Extension Style Guide to serve as an additional reference for WVU Extension-related words and expressions.
