    Hello. We currently use Turnitin at our college. We were told that the list price for Turnitin will be increasing from $2.40 per student to $4.00 per student for all MnSCU schools as of January 1st. We are looking at other alternatives. Is anyone using other plagiarism tools besides Turnitin? Thanks.
