  • If you suspect a student has committed academic dishonesty (see UPPS 07.10.01 for a detailed list of violations of the University Honor Code), you must follow university protocols. Contact Nancy Wilson ( if you have any questions.


  • If you wish to use Turnitin, you may want to require that your students submit their papers via the Assignments feature of TRACS. By clicking on the "Turnitin" option, students' papers will automatically yield Turnitin reports.  (The Assignments feature also allows you to require students to accept the Honor Pledge.)

    Even if you use the Assignments feature of TRACS, you can require that students also submit hard copies of their papers.
