Faculty Support

The Turnitin Suite is fully integrated into Gonzaga's BlackBoard platform, so you and your students do not need a separate password to use the software. However, instructors can use Turnitin directly from their website by going to Turnitin.com. If you would like to use Turnitin directly, please contact ATASupport at ATASupport@gonzaga.edu to have this arranged.

Turnitin strongly recommends that the course syllabus of each course making use of the Service carry a notice substantially similar to the effect of the following: “Students agree that by taking this course all required papers may be subject to submission for textual similarity review to Turnitin.com for the detection of plagiarism. All submitted papers will be included as source documents in the Turnitin.com reference database solely for the purpose of detecting plagiarism of such papers. Use of the Turnitin.com service is subject to the Usage Policy posted on the Turnitin.com site.


Note: Each Blackboard course and Turnitin assignment will be customized by the professor and may use different terms and components – this information will be as generic and inclusive as possible.


The primary actions as an instructor are to:

Post Date

95% of all support questions have to do with the Post date, that is why we mention it here at the beginning of the guide.
When an assignment is created, a Start, Due, and Post date are defined. The Post date is the day students can review the professor's feedback. If you have students that can not access comments you provided them through Turnitin, check the Post date for the assignment. You can edit the Post date anytime during the life of an assignment.
Please contact the ATAS team with any questions or to schedule individual or group training.
