Originality Check Procedure for Graduate Students


  1. Students can either run self-checks of their theses/dissertations through TurnItIn.com OR their theses/dissertation Committee Chairs can create TurnItIn assignments through Blackboard.

    Click here for instructions on performing self-checks of manuscripts and receiving TurnItIn accounts through the Graduate College.

  2. At the time of their defense, students obtain signatures from their Committee Chair for the Thesis/Dissertation Transmittal  Memo to confirm that their work has been checked for plagiarism.

  3. Submit signed Thesis/Dissertation Transmittal Memo to Graduate College along with signed signature page(s) and completed draft of thesis/dissertation according to the Graduate College Submission Deadlines.

Students who have any additional questions regarding TurnItIn accounts, submission, or evaluation of Originality Reports are encouraged to contact graduatewriting@fau.edu.
