    If you went to a university, but did not graduate and are no longer in any classes, and you do not work for them, do you still put "University of [x]" on the title page of a scientific paper?

    Thanks,

    The general convention is that the authors state their affiliations at the time the work was performed. If you're not associated with a university, and are, for example, publishing work that has resulted from corporate or industrial research, you would generally state the company that you work for.
