Turnitin Introduction

Willamette University has a campus-wide subscription to Turnitin.com, a widely-used plagiarism prevention and education service that allows access via the web for instructors and students. Instructors may or may not choose to use Turnitin, or they may choose Turnitin in combination with other plagiarism prevention techniques. Turnitin can also be accessed directly by instructors through an account at Turnitin linked to Willamette University or through the Assignments Tool in WISE course sites.

Turnitin provides a variety of documentation on their support website, including a FAQ and even quicker answers to common questions in the Popular Solutions section. This page also has both tabs and links to provide targeted help for both instructors and students.

If you are a student and you have questions or concerns about a possible plagiarism issue, please consult with your instructor as soon as possible. Additional information about plagiarism is available in the Willamette University Plagiarism Policy and on the Plagiarism Awareness and Avoidance page.
