Turnitin Standalone Account




Using Turnitin Standalone

If you are the primary instructor for a course, or you are a TA managing the course for the primary instructor, you may request a Turnitin account. If you are a TA who is simply assisting the primary instructor, do not request a Turnitin account. The primary instructor will create a TA role for you on his/her Turnitin account.

  1. Request an account from e-Learning Support Services using the Instructor Turnitin Request Form.
  2. Fill out the form and click Submit.
  3. You will receive a confirmation e-mail that the message has been received and a ticket has been created. It may take 1-2 business days to process your request.
  4. Once the account is ready, you will receive an e-mail from Turnitin with your username and password, the link to login, and usage instructions.
