The Turnitin administrator can select the paper repository options. You can do this within your account to either allow instructors to have access to paper repository assignment options or choose to have all student papers submitted to the standard repository. The Turnitin administrator has three options:


  • enable instructor standard repository options;
  • enable instructor expanded repository options; or
  • submit all papers to the standard repository


1. Login to Turnitin as the administrator and click on the Edit icon to the right of the account name
