Enrolling students

Enrolling students individually

An instructor may add students individually to the class. You must provide first name, last name, and e-mail address for the user. A welcome e-mail will be sent to the student being added to the class.

If the e-mail address provided already exists on a user profile on Turnitin, the user welcome e-mail indicates only that the user has been added to a class as a student.

If the Email address provided by the instructor has never been used to create a Turnitin profile before, a new user welcome e-mail is sent. The student is provided with a temporary password for logging into Turnitin to complete the user profile.

  1. From the class homepage select the Students tab to open the student list for the class.
  2. Select the Add Student button.
  3. Enter the required information - the student first name, last name, and Email address
  4. Select Submit to enroll the student. A welcome Email will be sent to the user.

Enrolling students from a list

You may upload a student list to add to a course. The student list must be one hundred (100) entries or less. Larger classes may be separated into multiple lists, each of which can be uploaded individually.

The list must be a Microsoft Excel file. The first name, last name, and Email address for each student must be provided. The formatting must be as shown below:

Once the student list is available, the list may be uploaded from the student page of the class.

By adding students to the class directly, each student added to the class will be automatically e-mailed and provided with instructions on how to create their password. If the e-mail address entered when adding a student is not valid, the student will not receive an e-mail. For this reason, students who do not possess valid e-mail addresses must enroll themselves using the class ID and enrollment key.

  1. In the student list area, select the Upload Student List button.
  2. Select the Choose file button and locate the file containing the student list on your computer.
  3. Select submit to upload the student list file
  4. The student list will be displayed. Check the displayed list for errors. To submit this list, select yes, submit. If you find any errors, or the incorrect file was selected, choose no, go back and make the necessary changes or select a different file for step 3
  5. Once yes, submit has been selected the final screen will display the newly enrolled list of student users. To return to the class student page, select the return to students link in the top right-hand corner.
