New Login Page

We recently updated the Turnitin.com website, replacing the Sign In fields at the top of each webpage, with a Log In button. Clicking the Log In button will take users to a new login page where they can log in with their email address and password.

By removing the sign in fields from all of our web pages, it allows us to streamline our website and reduce load time. The new login page will also highlight new features, training resources, and helpful tips. Users can bookmark this new login page which will load faster and provide quick links to helpful resources.


Note: This change will not impact users accessing Turnitin via an LMS integration.
