Turnitin Assignments

Please note that a Turnitin assignment is not considered officially submitted until it is turned in
as “Final submission (required)" document.


So if you are missing a score for your assignment, please check your submission and, if necessary, re-submit it as a "Final submission".

The "Trial Submissions" are there as part of the overall learning opportunity, for you to check (twice, if you like) your spelling, grammar, syntax, vocabulary, style, and proper attribution (and other items that can help to get you a high grade) before you officially submit your paper. "Trial submissions" are optional; you may do them or not at your pleasure, but the "Final submission" is required.


AVISO: Late Term Papers will not be accepted unless (1) arrangements for an alternate date have been arranged in advance, or (2) medical emergencies or similar extraordinary unexpected circumstances make it unfeasible to turn in the assignment by the announced due date. Why?
