Setting up your account

If you have received a welcome email from Turnitin, this confirms that your Turnitin account is now ready to use, or you have been added as an administrator by a top-level administrator within your institution, and can now access the Turnitin service.

 

 
Existing Turnitin user? Each Turnitin account must have a unique email address. Skip to guidance on Logging In if you have already created a Turnitin account.
