TurningPoint for students

A TurningPoint Account is required for all users. If you don't have an account yet, you can create one from WebCampus. A University email address, e.g, @nevada.unr.edu, is preferred but not required for TurningPoint account registration. If you already have an account you will need to log in your account from WebCampus to link them (your NetID and Turning Account) together. You only have to do it once. You need a valid Turning subscription to use TurningPoint applications.
