How do I use Turnitin to check my own drafts for plagiarism?

The Turnitin Self-Checker allows Purchase College students to check rough drafts of papers for plagiarism and proper citation. You can use the originality report generated by Turnitin to identify paraphrases or citations that need revision before your final draft is due.

The Turnitin Self-Checker is available to all Purchase College students, faculty, and staff (requires current Purchase College login) and is not connected to any particular course or assignment.

Please note: only current Purchase College students, staff, and faculty can access Purchase College’s Turnitin Self-Checker. You must have a current Moodle/email account to login. There is no Guest access available.

To access the Turnitin Self-Checker, just click this link, login to Moodle, and self-enroll into the space.

To upload a paper to the Turnitin Self-Checker, see the Student Submission directions at the Turnitin tab of the Moodle: Beyond Basics guide.
