iThenticate (plagiarism) check

All unrestricted drafts are checked for originality via iThenticate. 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 and Approval Form (TRAF) has been routed for departmental approvals and a Final Review request has been made will be forwarded to the Dean of Students Office. Questions? Get answers here.
