  1. Login to Turnitin using NUSNET credentials has been disabled as of 15 December 2016. This is Turnitin's decision, not CIT's.
  2. If you have:
    1. used Turnitin directly before December 2016 or
    2. ever used Turnitin via IVLE,
    you already have a Turnitin account with your NUSNET email as your username and a system-assigned random password.
  3. These instructions are applicable only to Turnitin users who need to access Turnitin directly.
    If you only use Turnitin via IVLE Files (Workbin), these instructions do not apply to you.
  4. Instructors and students using Turnitin directly, do note the new account creation and submission process for students.

  3. DO NOT reuse your NUSNET password for your Turnitin account.
Reset your Turnitin password
  • Go to the Turnitin login page.
  • Click the Forgot your password link. (See note below regarding last name.)
  • If the email and password match the details that Turnitin has on record, you will be sent an email with further instructions on resetting your password.
  • If you get the wrong last name, refer to the note below.

You need to provide your NUS email address and your last name.

  • The NUS Turnitin Administrator does not know nor has access to individual account information in Turnitin.

As your last name is system-assigned, your actual last name likely does not tally with the last name in your Turnitin account.

In some cases, Turnitin takes your NUSNET email address as your last name.

In many cases, Turnitin takes your name as in your matriculation card in order of first word in your name as first name, then all following names as the last name.
