TurnItIn can only be used if your instructor has enabled it: 

With the transition to Canvas, students will be able to use TurnItIn as the plagiarism checking tool. 

Students should contact their instructor directly to request that they set up a TurnItIn draft assignment in their course to submit and view a similarity report for a draft of a writing assignment.

Another option is to set up an appointment with the Student Success Center or use the SmartThinking tutoring service, for APA and citation help on essays.
