  • The text must be easily readable in Time New Roman font or other standard font (black or dark color)
  • The ideal font size of the full statement is 11.
  • A font size as small as 9 point may be used.
  • If the document is a one page document, the font size must be the same as the rest of the font used to maintain equal importance.  
  • If the full statement does not fit, use the abbreviated “equal opportunity” statement.  The abbreviated statement font must be the same size as the font size used in the document.
