To access Turnitin, go to the website http://www.turnitin.com and click the "create an account" link in the upper right corner.  

You will be creating a new account as a student.  Turnitin has several instructional videos and documents related to working with your account: https://guides.turnitin.com/01_Manuals_and_Guides/Student/01_Student_QuickStart_Guide

Note on passwords:  The website will prompt you regarding a class ID and class enrollment password such as "English211turner" and "1234password."  That information is available from your instructor.   The writing center does not have the account set up info.  Only instructors can give that info to the students. 

If you are not sure how to interpret an originality report in Turnitin, you can request help in the Wilmer Writing Center.  The tutors can give you some guidance about how to handle your sources and avoid plagiarism.
