Turnitin: Turnitin @ RIT


Turnitin @ RIT

Turnitin is a plagiarism-education tool that is available to all current faculty and staff at the Rochester Institute of Technology through myCourses, as well as through RIT Libraries. Items submitted to Turnitin by the library Turnitin Administrator will not be added to Turnitin's repositories. Faculty can add papers to the Turnitin repositories through myCourses submissions or a direct Turnitin account with Standard Paper Repository enabled.


Faculty are encouraged to use Turnitin (i.e. Originality Check) via the myCourses Dropbox whenever possible.  For more information, please contact Academic Technology Support.

If the myCourses Dropbox is not sufficient for your needs, you may request to have a direct account created on the Turnitin system or request to have an an Originality Report generated for a paper on your behalf by the Turnitin Administrator. Below are links to the policies and procedures regarding the latter option:


Students may not request to have an Originality Report generated without written faculty consent.

Graduate theses, dissertations, and capstone projects may be submitted to Turnitin only with the formal consent of the project's faculty adviser. For more information, please see Student Papers and Projects.

Please contact the Turnitin Administrator: turnitin@rit.edu.


Disclaimer: The Turnitin Administrator and RIT Libraries Staff cannot interpret Turnitin results nor determine if a particular instance constitutes plagiarism. For information on Originality reports and more visit Turnitin's documentation.
