What is SafeAssign? Where do I find it? How do I use it?

SafeAssign is plagiarism prevention software integrated into Blackboard. It checks all submitted papers against various databases to detect unoriginal text.

To submit your assignment you must first login to your Blackboard account and access your course. You can find the login page by clicking on the blackboard link from the CU home page or at
Your username and password is the same as for your email and AggieAccess.

Once you have logged into Blackboard and accessed your course, you will click Assignments on the left side of the screen.

Once in the Assignment screen you will see your Safe Assignment.
It will have this icon next to the assignment .

Now click on the link
You are now in the Upload SafeAssignment screen. Here is where you will upload your paper. To upload the file, click on the browse button. You will now need to search for the paper you created and saved on your computer. Once you locate the file you will need to attach it. This is similar to attaching a file in email. Once you locate the file, highlight it and click open or double click on the file.

Your file is now attached. You can also write any comments to your instructor within the comment text box. You will also need to click the box next to I agree to submit my paper to the Global Reference Database. Once you have done all of these steps you can click the submit button.
