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.

Try the following as your last name, in this order:

  1. Your NUSNET ID e.g. citabc or e0123456
  2. Your NUSNET email address
  3. Your friendly-mail alias
  4. Everything after the first word in your name as in your staff or matriculation card. Example:
    1. IVLE Display Name: Tan Ah Kow
    2. First name in Turnitin is: Tan
    3. Last name in Turnitin is: Ah Kow

You may have to try several variations to retrieve your Turnitin password

If you have tried all possible variations of your name and you have a friendly-mail email, try the friendly-mail instead.
