Copyright & Plagiarism Tutorials

Graduate degree candidates should review the university’s Copyright Tutorial and the library’s Plagiarism Tutorial.

The tutorials may be completed any time before the report, thesis, dissertation, or treatise is submitted. Students are encouraged to undertake them before they begin to write, as the tutorials are designed to educate the student on frequently confusing and changing copyright laws, as well as issues related to plagiarism.

Students must provide proof of successful completion (100%) of the copyright tutorial test as part of their final graduation submission. This proof must be printed from the copyright tutorial’s grade page in Canvas.
