Submitting a SafeAssignment

If your instructor uses the SafeAssignment feature in Blackboard, your papers will be checked for originality. This 3 minute video shows you how to submit your paper as a SafeAssignment.


Safe Assignment does NOT accept MS .docx files. If you have Office ’97 you will need to save your document as either a Word 97-2006 document or in Rich Text Format.

When naming your document do NOT use special characters such as apostrophe (‘), pound sign (#), ampersand (&), slash (/), backslash (\), etc…
