By default, Turnitin accepts most common file types. However, your subject coordinator may have restricted this to a particular file type for your assessment. Check your Learning Guide or speak to your subject coordinator for these details.

For unacceptable file types and more detail on submitting Microsoft Excel (.xls and .xlsx), Microsoft PowerPoint (.ppt, .pptx, and .pps), Adobe PDF, Google Docs via Google Drive files, consult the File Types and Size FAQ from Turnitin.

Turnitin will accept any file:

  • where the text can be checked for similarity,
  • that is less than 100MB,
  • that has a minimum of 20 words, and
  • that is less than 800 pages.

If a file only contains text, it must be less than 2MB.

For technical help with Turnitin, please contact the IT Service Desk.
