Turnitin says that email address is already in their system so you do not need to join again. You probably just need to retrieve your password. Please login with the user name (email address) and password you created.

Your Turnitin user name is this email address: _____________

If you have forgotten your password here are instructions for retrieving/resetting it. Go to and try to login. At the next screen where it says Forgot Your User Name Click Here, click and enter your email address and last name. Click next. At the next screen answer your secret question and continue with the prompts in order to retrieve your password.  There is even a button to push to continue the process if you forget the answer to your secret question or made a typo when creating it. Please make a note of your password because UMGC will not have a record of it

If you are an instructor and you don't remember your Turnitin user name (email address) you can write to and the team can look it up for you.

Once you have logged in go to UMGC instructions for faculty using Turnitin at and continue with Step 2. Create a Class.

If you are a student and you have enrolled in your instructor's Turnitin class but you don't remember your user name (email address), your instructor can look that up in the Turnitin class. 


Good luck!
