How do I get a turnitin account?

The majority of UH instructors have integrated Turnitin into Blackboard course. It is set up inside their Blackboard courses. Through the Blackboard Learn, students can submit assignments into Turnitin with single sign-in, and instructors can synchronize students’ rosters between Blackboard and Turnitin easily. Students' grades in Turnitin can be synchronized back to the Blackboard gradebook.

Outside of Blackboard

The tool may be used outside of Blackboard as well, but the process requires more from the instructor to set up the account in the Turnitin company website, provide account information to students, and work with the Turnitin company support if there is an issue with getting students' work. To use Turnitin outside of Blackboard, you must have a University of Houston account ID and password. Please email for the password to use Turnitin outside of Blackboard.
