Changing repository options

This option will allow instructors to view an assignment setting to allow students to opt-out of having their papers stored in the Universal Student Paper Database. The papers of students who choose to opt-out will be stored in a separate database of your institution's papers. Using this option is recommended if you have classes to which sensitive information is submitted (e.g. a business class in which real corporate project plans or future product specifications are submitted).


Select the Edit  icon from the administrator homepage, then select Edit account settings.



Select one of the three options from the Paper repository options:

  • Enable instructor standard repository options:
    Chosen instructors will be able to set the assignment option to either store student papers within the standard paper repository or to not store the papers in any repository.
  • Enable instructor expanded repository options:
    Instructors will be able to set their assignment options to store student papers in the standard paper repository, in the institutional paper repository, no repository, or to allow students to choose between the standard paper repository and the institutional paper repository.


  • Submit all papers to the standard repository: 
    All student papers submitted to the account will be stored in the standard paper repository.
