Creating and managing sub-accounts

In this guide:

There are two types of Turnitin account administrators:

  • Primary account administrator - controls a consortium or campus level account and can also assign additional sub-administrators as necessary to oversee specific campuses or departments. An account can only have a single primary account administrator.
  • Sub-account administrators - have access only to the single campus or departmental accounts they are assigned, though a single user profile may serve as sub-administrator for multiple campuses or departments as needed. 

Creating a sub-account

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

  5. Customize the account settings and features to your institution. 
  6. Scroll to the bottom of the page and select the Submit button.
