Submitting Turnitin Assignments

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.
  • A message will appear at the top of the Turnitin assignment alerting you that you must accept the latest Turnitin User Agreement before you can make a submission.
