Your instructor may ask you to submit an assignment through SafeAssign. The steps below show what a SafeAssignment looks like, and how to submit one.

Using SafeAssign in HuskyCT

Before clicking on the assignment link, the regular assignments and those that will be checked by SafeAssign look the same. Once you click on the assignment link to upload your assignment, if it is a SafeAssign, you will see SafeAssign mentioned in two places, under the Assignment Information and under the Assignment Submission box.

  1. Click on Browse My Computer to upload your assignment. Once you upload the file, you will see the file name listed under the Assignment Submission box (please pay attention to the acceptable file types).
  2. Click on Submit to submit your assignment. 

    If you click on Save as Draft, your assignment will not be submitted.

  3. Be sure you receive a confirmation of your submission.  If your submission was successful, the confirmation will be found at the top of the page in a green banner after clicking on the submit button. There will also be a confirmation number. You will also receive an email upon successful submission that includes this number.
