Creating a Turnitin sub-account

Table of contents
No headers

A Turnitin sub-account should be created for a Canvas Plagiarism Framework integration. This sub-account should be utilized for only one production-level integration. If an integration is needed for an additional account, sub-account, or class, you must create another Turnitin sub-account to manage this integration.



Log in as an administrator to your institution's or account.


Select the  New Account     icon for your top-level account.

From the Add Account page, enter an Account Name.

Use “Canvas Plagiarism Framework” as part of the Account Name; this will help both you and Turnitin Support to recognize the purpose of the account if needed.


Do not add a sub-administrator to the account. Leave all sub-account fields blank.

This is important! The sub-account must have the same administrator as the top-level account.


Ensure that the only checked feature in the Allow these features list is Grammar check using ETS® e-rater® technology. Uncheck everything else.

Check your account settings! Select the Edit  icon from the administrator homepage, then select Edit account settings to check or edit your settings.
