iThenticate Accounts

Each college has its own domain and at least one administrator in iThenticate. Administrators manually create accounts for faculty members in the college. Graduate students can get access to iThenticate from their prospective thesis coordinator or appropriate department administrator. At this time, iThenticate does not have a way to integrate into the campus-provided NetID and password system. While your account will have as your username, you will be asked to set up a password upon first login. Once a college administrator creates an account for you, you will receive an email to activate your account.
