10.15.6. Turnitin

Turnitin is originality-checking software designed to help students avoid plagiarism and to aid professors in detecting it. The use of Turnitin by faculty is voluntary. Students should make sure they understand their obligations under the Oglethorpe honor code (see Sec. 11.). Students who are uncertain about plagiarism and how to avoid it are strongly advised to seek help with both their instructors and the writing center (see Sec. 10.9.5.) in developing all stages of written work, including issues of quoting and citing.
