Turnitin Trial Submission

To promote academic integrity and to enable students to monitor their written work, Saybrook University utilizes Turnitin for assignments submitted in Canvas. Any written document submitted through Canvas is automatically run through Turnitin, which generates an originality report that provides a similarity index score. The Center for Writing & Academic Success houses a Turnitin Trail Submission within the Center's Canvas Shell that can be used to access a similarity report prior to submission within the course. Within the course, Turnitin is accessible within the navigation bar on the left. 

Drop-in Hours

Each semester, the Center for Writing & Academic Success hosts drop-in hours which are best used for quick questions about writing or the resources available through the Center for Writing and Academic Success. Individuals with questions that require further support should schedule an appointment with one of our writing coaches​​.
