How is the migration process set up?

The migration will happen in three stages: pre-migration, migration, and post-migration.

During the pre-migration phase, our primary goal is to seamlessly integrate your institution’s needs into our migration process. To facilitate this, you will consider a list of questions from Turnitin covering aspects such as your integration needs, data privacy requirements, preferred migration timeframe and a new Turnitin product license.

To streamline the scheduling process, you will receive an email with a web form, allowing you to select a specific migration window that best aligns with your operational calendar. Each migration window will last for approximately four weeks, during which time you will have access to both your Ouriginal account and your new Turnitin account.


Once we enter the migration phase, you will gain access to your new Turnitin solution. Within the migration window, you will set up a Turnitin account, test its functionality, and complete your transition from Ouriginal. To support you throughout the migration, we will offer onboarding and training resources.


In the post-migration phase, you will begin using a new Turnitin solution, and we will be here to address any follow-up needs you may have. We will also encourage you to evaluate your migration to a new Turnitin solution.
