Upload the Required Information for Part B (see below) in Microsoft Word using the template provided. Click here for Part B Template. When submitting your profile part, avoid including the required information headings below. Otherwise, your Turnitin similarity score will reflect this duplicate information. See Turnitin requirements below.
For each Family Business Profile part, your similarity score must meet a threshold of no more than 20%.
Parts with greater than 20% similarity must be revised and resubmitted to Turnitin as many times as needed until the 20% threshold is achieved.
For resubmissions, it may take up to 24 hours for a new similarity score.
It is the student’s responsibility to allow enough time for resubmission of their part to Turnitin if their initial report did not meet the 20% threshold.
Profile parts with more than 20% threshold will receive a zero.
