When finished using Turnitin:
Click logout at the top of the screen when you are finished submitting your work.
If your professor allows for several submissions for a particular paper, you will typically need to wait 24 hours before you can review an originality report after your first submission. In other words, you won’t be able to make more than one submission a day for a particular assignment and get the report.
Some faculty members will only allow one submission for a paper. Be sure you are aware of faculty plans before submitting your work.
After your first login, you’ll be able to login to the site by just giving your WJU email and the password that you created the first time you logged in… (you won’t use “new user” after your first time into the software.)
The site has a timeout. If you sit too long, you’ll need to log back in.
