Turnitin can permanently delete a paper from our database so that it can no longer be used as a searchable source. For contractual reasons, all requests for paper deletions from our database must be submitted in writing by the school or university's Turnitin administrator. Please have your administrator contact us regarding this matter. The administrator will need to provide us with the paper ID number, class ID number, and assignment name.
NOTE: It is possible to create assignments which do not save submitted papers to the Turnitin database. The "no repository" option is a selection choice you have when creating new assignments.
