There are four types of Turnitin accounts:
If this is an individual instructor account, you cannot set up sub-accounts and should skip ahead to the next chapter. If the account is a consortium, institution, or department account, this chapter will walk through setting up the account.
The administrator for a consortium account is responsible for providing the Turnitin salesperson with a list of sub-accounts (institutions) to be added to the consortium. Instructors will only be able to join these sub-accounts. Institutional accounts are created by Turnitin account representatives.
If this is an institution account, you can choose to add departmental accounts. If the account is for a large university, for example, adding departments to the account may better organize the instructor lists.
Warning: If you have purchased an Individual or Department license, you will not need to add schools or departments to these accounts.
