Audience: City University London students and staff

Are you preparing to submit an assignment on Moodle for the first time this academic year? Over the summer, the Turnitin assignment in Moodle was updated. This means that you are required to review and accept an updated Turnitin User Agreement prior to your first assignment submission.

Please note that you will not be able to accept this agreement on some mobile browsers or using Safari. If you have problems accepting the statement try using a different browser for your first Turnitin submission.


  • Click on the link to the Turnitin assignment on your module homepage.
  • Click on Submit Paper link.

  • If your pop-ups are blocked, and you then unblock them you will need to click on the link entitled Please click here to read and accept the Agreement… again to open the User Agreement.
  • Read and click I agree–continue to continue to submit your assignment. You will see a confirmation box.
  • Click outside the confirmation box. Click the Submit Paper link again.
  • If you are prompted again to accept the User Agreement return to the module homepage. Select the link to the Turnitin assignment. Click the Submit Paper link and the User Agreement will not appear and you can submit your assignment.
