Joining an account as an instructor

To join Turnitin as an instructor, you must first receive an email from Turnitin on behalf of your account administrator. If you haven't received this email yet, ask your account administrator to add you to your institution's account or to confirm your email address.

  1. Check your email for the subject line 'Set up Your Turnitin Instructor Account'.
  2. Follow the Set up account button to get started.
  3. From the Account Setup page, enter your email address and Last Name.

    The information you use during the account setup is provided to us by your Administrator. We ask you to confirm it here for security reasons. Getting an error message? Check with your account administrator that they've spelled your name correctly!

  4. Back to your email inbox! This time, look out for the subject line 'Create your Turnitin password'.
  5. Follow the Create password button you'll find in the email.
  6. Create a password for use with your account.

    Your password must be between 6 and 12 characters in length, containing at least one letter and one number.

  7. You're all set. You can now use the details you've just created to log in to Turnitin.
