You have access to TurnItIn through Canvas if your professor enables it for an assignment. For example, your professor can make TurnItIn available as an optional assignment prior to the due date of the final assignment. This allows you to use TurnItIn as a learning tool, and address any problems prior to submitting the final paper, which is also run through TurnItIn.
The company behind TurnItIn also has a fee-based service designed just for student use. WriteCheck by TurnItIn is a plagiarism checker and a grammar checker. To use this service, you would sign up directly with WriteCheck. A library staffer used this service throughout her business courses and recommends it highly!
