Opting to allow any file type

The account settings page allows you to change the default options set at account creation.

  1. To begin customizing your Turnitin account settings, click the Edit icon alongside the account you wish to edit.
  2. Select Edit account settings.


Don't forget to click the Submit button at the bottom of the page to save any changes you make to the account!

Use the checkbox to make any file type submissions a default assignment setting. If you enable this setting, the default setting for new assignments within this account will be 'allow students to submit any type of file to Turnitin'. When an assignment allows submission of all file types, instructors will always be able to leave feedback on and download submitted files. Turnitin will try to generate a similarity report and make the file viewable within Turnitin depending on the type of file submitted.
