How to Access Turnitin

In Assignments

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.

Student Tutorials

These tutorials are only relevant if students will be uploading papers directly to a Turnitin course created in turnitin.com. If the course is using e-Learning, students will simply upload their submissions to the Assignments tool.

Turnitin currently accepts the following file types for upload into an assignment:

If a file format issue is occurring, please re-open the file in a word processor, and save the file again using the "save as" function and choosing a different format from the file type pull down menu (try RTF or TXT as they are the most "safe").

If an unsupported word processor is being used, you may need to save the file as a TXT or RTF file in order to upload to Turnitin.
