    Students can submit papers to assignments which have been created by an instructor. 
     
    You can choose to do a SINGLE FILE UPLOAD or use the CUT & PASTE FEATURE (this is a drop down box at top of screen).
     
    Students are provided with two ways to upload their papers to Turnitin assignments: by single file upload, or by cut and paste upload.  It is recommended that students upload papers by single file upload whenever possible.  Nevertheless, you may choose to submit by cut and paste upload.

The receipt is also e-mailed to you.  Please check your e-mail, including your junk, bulk or deleted file (it is sometimes filtered as spam) for the digital receipt email.
