• ABOUT TURNITIN.COM
    Turnitin.com is an electronic tool available through the school that checks student's work for plagiarism. The way turnitin.com works is: it filters through a massive database of all submitted student papers and a wide variety of internet and print sources looking for similarities. All partial or complete matches are generated into an originality report which is viewable by the instructor. After a student has submitted a paper, he/she will be able to view the percentage of plagiarism in his or her own paper, but not the originality report. ALL major grade assignments MUST be submitted through turnitin.com. Plagiarism is a serious offense and will be dealt with according to the school's cheating policy.
