A simple criterion for the involutivity of a system of partial differential equations of polynomial type is proved. The criterion involves the equations themselves and does not require the system to be in orthonomic form. It is proved that a system of partial differential equations is involutive if it is a differential Grobner basis with respect to a total degree ordering, and if the compatibility conditions of the symbol equations of the system consist of equations of degree one. An algorithm for calculating these compatibility conditions is given.
