Students are unable resubmit a Turnitin assignment after the due date if they have already submitted before the due date. To accommodate resubmissions when required (i.e. when the student has an extension), you are able to submit a Turnitin assignment on behalf of a student. You can also submit a Turnitin assignment on behalf of a student if they are having trouble submitting.


  1. Click on the Assessment link in your Learn.UQ course (or another folder where you created your Turnitin assignment).
