What is sentence case?

Your title of your thesis, dissertation or report must be in sentence case.

Three main points for sentence case are: 

1. Capitalize the first word of the title/heading and of any subtitle/subheading;

2. Capitalize any proper nouns and certain other types of words; and

3. Use lowercase for everything else.
