This Instructor QuickStart will help you get started with Turnitin as an instructor. To begin you need to register with Turnitin and create a user profile. If you have received an e-mail from Turnitin with a temporary password, a user profile has already been created for you. To get started, log in to Turnitin with your e-mail address and password and proceed to Step 2 in this QuickStart.
Step 1 - Creating a User Profile
To register and create a user profile, go to or (UK) and select your language from the drop down menu.
Click on the 'Create Account' link on the homepage and the Create a User Profile page will open.
Click on the 'Instructor' link. Fill in the required information in the new user profile form. In order to complete your profile, you must have an Account ID and an Account Join Password. You can get this information from your institution's account administrator.

Once you have created your profile, click the 'I Agree' button to log into Turnitin.

Step 2 - Adding a Class
Click the 'Add Class' button to create a class.

On the 'Create a New Class' page, enter a class name and an enrollment password.

The class enrollment password is the password your students will use to enroll in your class. Pick a password that is easy for your students to remember and that contains all lowercase letters.
The end date is the date your class expires. When a class expires students can no longer submit papers or enroll in the class. The default duration for all classes is 6 months. If you want your class to last longer or shorter, you can change the end date.

Click 'Submit' to add the class to your homepage.
Step 3 - Class Information

The class will now appear in your class list beneath your account. The number to the left of your class name is the class ID. Students will use this ID along with the class enrollment password to enroll in your class. You can view your class enrollment password at any time by clicking the edit icon to the right of your class.

You should distribute your class ID and enrollment password to your students so that they can enroll in your class and submit their papers. Be sure to include this link to our student QuickStart: QuickStart Guide

With this information, your students will have everything they need to get started with Turnitin.

Click on the name of your class to open your class homepage
