Last week we started getting reports from students and faculty about trouble uploading to Turnitin. After attaching a document and hitting submit, the system was getting stuck and timing out while uploading. After investigating, we determined the problem seems to be isolated to students using a Mac computer and attempting to upload to Turnitin using the Safari browser.  To submit your paper without getting stuck, please switch to a different browser.  We suggest either Chrome or Firefox.

If you are in either Chrome or Firefox and are experiencing this issue, please clear your cache, this usually corrects the problem.
