Q. How do I create a Turnitin account in order to check my paper for plagiarism?
At this time only professors have access to the plagiarism checker Turnitin. Please contact your Mentor for any information regarding Turnitin.
However, you have access to Grammarly, the automated grammar checker. In addition to checking grammar, "Grammarly finds unoriginal text before it gets you into trouble by checking for plagiarism against a database of over 8 billion web pages. Grammarly not only brings borrowed texts to light but also suggests citations."
You can find the instructions for signing up for a Grammarly account here. For additional assistance, view frequently asked questions, submit a question, or chat live daily via Ask a Coach.
