In partnership with the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education, Clarion University has contracted with Turnitin.com, an anti-plagiarism software company, to provide campus-wide service for faculty to help determine whether a student's work is original or if it has been matched to an alternate source. It is important to advise students at the beginning of a course about university policies on plagiarism; faculty are also required to notify students when Turnitin is used in a course. Please read Clarion University's policies under Turnitin Links in the sidebar area to the right.
University policies, instructions to enable Turnitin in D2L, FAQs, plagiarism guides, privacy issues and other resources, such as sample statements to include in syllabi, are also available at this site. The Turnitin service is available only through Clarion University's Desire2Learn (D2L) course management system.
