Identity and Standards Guide - Days and Months / State Abbreviations / Stand-alone CitiesDays and months
The names of days should always be spelled out completely. The names of months should not be abbreviated when used in a sentence without a date. Example: Homecoming will be the second Saturday in October.
However, days with a month and date should be abbreviated. Abbreviate all names of months except the short ones (March, April, May, June, July). Example: Today is Sept. 25, 2006. Use the following AP abbreviations for names of months:
Jan. Feb. Aug. Sept. Oct. Nov. Dec.
State names are abbreviated, based on AP style, within sentences and running texts when a city name precedes the state.
Example: Many Concordia students come from Montana. In fact, there are three students from Great Falls, Mont., on her floor.
City names with state names are spelled out only in formal programs, such as the Commencement program. When referring to a city and state, put a comma before and after the state.
When using a complete address that includes a ZIP code, use the two-letter state Postal Service abbreviations. When there is no ZIP code, abbreviate all state names except for the short ones (Alaska, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Maine, Ohio, Texas, Utah). Use the following AP abbreviations for state names:
