Joining an Account

The join account and join account (TA) tabs allow an instructor to join an additional Turnitin account. Some instructors may need to join multiple departmental or campus accounts or may be employed by multiple institutions.


If upon first login, there are no accounts available in the Instructor homepage, you must join an account in order to create a class and assignment.

Note: If you would like students to enroll themselves in this class, they will need both the enrollment password you have chosen and the unique class ID generated by Turnitin.


Note: Should you ever forget the class ID, it is the number to the left of the class name on your class list. You can view or change your enrollment password by editing the class.
