Teacher account on Turnitin.com

I need to create an instructor / teacher account on turnitin.com.   How can I get a turnitin.com account?   I want to submit an example paper for my students, how do I access my turnitin.com account?

 If you have previously used Turnitin within a D2L Brightspace assignments folder, then you already have a Turnitin account.  You will need to follow a few easy steps to access your account on Turnitin.com.


  1. Navigate to http://turnitin.com/.
  2. Click on the login link in the upper right hand corner.
  3. Under the email and password boxes, click on the "Forgot your password? Click here" button.

  1. Enter your mnsu.edu email address and the last name associated with your D2L account.
  2. Click next.
  3. Follow the instructions on the screen until you are able to login with your mnsu.edu email and your new password.


If you have not previously used Turnitin with a D2L Brightspace assignment folder, you can create a test folder within any semester course as long as it was held within the last year.  You may want to use a course that is closed to students.


  1. In your D2L Brightspace course, click on Assessments, then Assignments.
  2. Click the "New Submission Folder" button.
  3. Enter a title for your folder.
  4. Click the Turnitin tab.
  5. Click the checkbox next to "Enable Turnitin for this folder."
  6. Click Save and Close.
  7. Follow the steps above to change your password for Turnitin.com.
