Students Using Turnitin

Submit your paper in BlueQuill separately:

Submitting a paper to in any capacity is not the same as submitting a paper in BlueQuill to be graded by your professor. If you are required to submit your paper to Turnitin to check for originality, you will still need to submit your paper separately in BlueQuill to be graded. Here is a link on how to submit assignments in BlueQuill.


How a student uses Turnitin integration in BlueQuill:

To submit a paper through Turnitin inside of BlueQuill, your course will have to have BlueQuill integration turned on for that course. If you are unsure if your course has Turnitin integration, please see the screenshots below or ask your instructor.

  • Late submit
  • View Originality Report, make changes to their document and resubmit
  • Upload one file per assignment
