Turnitin checkup

All unrestricted drafts are checked for originality via Turnitin. Results are provided to students and their advisors, providing ample time to correct potential plagiarism concerns before the Final Draft is submitted. The Graduate Writing Center can help students improve citation and paraphrasing if such issues were identified. Potential plagiarism identified after the Thesis Release Form has been submitted with a Final Review request will be forwarded to the Dean of Students Office. Questions? Get answers here.
