Question:

Turnitin: How to access the Turnitin Guide

(Last edited: Friday, 18 September 2020, 1:59 PM)
Answer:

All students are required to submit their written reports/assignments/exams through the Turnitin plagiarism software. This is considered part of the formal submission requirements.

Turnitin is used by Wittenborg University of Applied Science to detect cases of plagiarism. The software compares the writing used within any document to other sources, for instance, websites on the Internet, journal articles, books, and other student work from other universities. Further details of the Turnitin submission process are provided during Wittenborg Introduction Week.

In the attached document you will see the detailed guide.

Login is done by using your assigned user name (studentnumber@student.wittenborg.eu) and password. See Part 4 of the EEG for more technical information.

Question:

Graduation Assignment Clearance Form:How can I upload my Graduation Clearance Form?

(Last edited: Monday, 13 July 2020, 11:49 AM)
Answer:

No student is allowed to upload and defend their Graduation Assignment/Final Project unless they have uploaded a completed and signed clearance form at the time of submission of the final version (the deadline is same for the final version of GA/FP submission and clearance form). The clearance form shows that a student has completed all the required exams except the Final Project and have achieved 60 European Credits, and paid all outstanding dues to the institution.

A scanned copy of the properly filled out and signed Clearance Form (check EEG, Part 8) by all departments should be uploaded by the student in the Master's GA/FP online area before the deadline (Check module online area for exact time and date).

However, during this COVID-19 situation, this practice has been suspended until further notice. Students can check the status of this requirement via the GA (Final Project) module online area.
