TurningPoint for students

A Turning account is required for all users. If you don’t yet have an account, one can be created directly from WebCampus. A University email address (e.g., @nevada.unr.edu) is recommended but not required for Turning account registration. If you already have an account, you will need to log in to it via WebCampus in order to link your WebCampus and Turning accounts. You will only have to do this once.

Please note: While a University email address is not required to create your Turning account, it is required to receive the discounted subscription price ($15 per year). Before registering for a new account, make sure your University email address is your preferred address in WebCampus (you can update this in MyNevada). See instructions below for more information.

Below you will find links to step-by-step instructions and a video guide for creating and registering your Turning account, connecting it with WebCampus, and purchasing a subscription. You will also learn about different subscription options and the mobile app.
