  5. The path to your file will now be entered in the "File to Attach" window.
  6. Under  Section 3, "Global Reference Database",  you can submit your paper to Blackboard's global database, which means that if a student at another institution using SafeAssign copies your language too closely, SafeAssign will flag the instance and include the copied text as part of the "originality report," indicating that the passage was copied from your work. If you do want your paper included in the Global Reference Database, click in the square selection box in that section.
  7. Scroll down to the bottom of the page, and click the Submit Button button to send your submission to the server.
  8. Depending on how big your file is, SafeAssign will ask you to wait while your file is being uploaded. SafeAssign will confirm that your SafeAssignment has been "successfully submitted." Click on the OK Button button to return to the opening page for your course.
