Some assignments may allow students the ability to overwrite their previous
submissions until the due date and time set for the assignment. This option can be
set by the instructor on an assignment by assignment basis. If overwriting is not
enabled, the instructor must manually delete a previous submission to allow the
student user to submit a second ﬁle.
Note: Only a single ﬁle may be submitted by a student user to any Turnitin
assignment. Any second or subsequent submission will overwrite the original
ﬁle submission in this assignment. Multiple ﬁles cannot be uploaded to the
same assignment by a student.
Tip: If there is more than one ﬁle that must be submitted to complete
the directions given by an instructor, contact the instructor immediately.
Additional assignments may be created, or the student users may need to
combine multiple documents into a single ﬁle of an acceptable ﬁle type to be
uploaded into Turnitin.
How to Resubmit to an Assignment
If resubmission by overwrite has been enabled or an instructor has deleted the
student user’s ﬁrst submission, a student may resubmit a paper by clicking on the
Turintin assignment, then clicking the SUBMIT link, and then clicking on the Resubmit
button to the right of the previous submission.
Note: Originality Reports for any resubmission that is made in an assignment
that allows resubmissions will require an additional twenty four hour delay to
This applies to all submissions past the ﬁrst submission made by any student
user in any assignment.
How to Open Originality Reports
Instructors can choose for each assignment whether or not to allow students to view
Originality Reports. If a student has been given access to Originality Reports, they
can view their report by clicking on an assignment from the homepage. This action
will open up a window displaying the start and due date, click the SUBMIT link to view
the assignment inbox.
