The upper margin is supposed to be 1" throughout my document. In the table of contents it changes from 1" to less than 1". How may I make it consistent?

Note: I am using the pwasu.sty style file from my university. I contacted them regarding this and other issues. Their only response was that if it doesn't meet the requirements then I must change it (no suggestion for resolution).

My .tex code:

Is this the same question: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/122657/… –  Marco Daniel Jul 6 '13 at 8:44
    
No, there are two problems with the same code. I posted two questions because I have two problems. –  spirulerlocus Jul 7 '13 at 12:53
