Turnitin Assignment - Student FAQ

I am having problems submitting my Turnitin Assignment?

If your Turnitin assignment does not indicate what files are acceptable, then I highly recommend you submit one of the following files types listed below and follow the guidelines listed below:
  1. A MS-Word file from Microsoft Office 365 software which is freely available for York University students.
  2. A PDF file using the Adobe Acrobat Reader.
  3. Your file must have a minimum 20 words, maximum of 400 pages, file size less than 40MB
  4. If you have scanned your response, you need to import it into a MS-Word document and type at least 20 words and then save.
  5. If you are not using MS-Office or Adobe Reader to create your document, then you have to save the file as a Rich text format (.rtf) file.

I submitted my Turnitin Assignment but I forgot something?

You may not be allowed to re-submit your Turnitin assignment if your instructor does not allow re-submission.

Similarly, you may not be allowed to submit your Turnitin assignment after the due date if the instructor does not allow.
