Permanently deleting a paper

Table of contents
No headers

A student submission can be permanently deleted from the Turnitin database so that it can no longer be used as a searchable source. For contractual reasons, all paper deletion requests must be submitted in writing by the Turnitin administrator.


To request a paper deletion contact the instructor for the course you submitted to. Your instructor will need:

Class ID - This can be found on the Student Homepage when you first log in to Turnitin. 
Assignment name - This can be found on your digital receipt. 
Submission ID - This can be found on your digital receipt. 


  You pass the submission details to your instructor.
  Your instructor checks your request and sends the details to your institution's account administrator. 
  The account administrator creates a support ticket with Turnitin.
  We send an email to the administrator asking them to confirm the deletion. The paper is then permanently deleted.
