Student ID

What is my Student ID?

At the time of admission or re-admission, students are assigned a system generated student identification number. If a student applies for admission online, they receive an onscreen acceptance letter with their new Student ID number which is also referred to as their “A#.” When a student applies in person, the Registrar’s Office gives the student a card with their A# written on it.

How is it used?

Your student ID number (A#) is used to identify your records at NMJC. Students may use their student ID number to log in to T-BirdWeb Portal and Canvas. Click the arrow to the right to learn more about both of these services.

Changing Your Class Schedule

Adding/Dropping a Class During the Enrollment Period

If you do not want a class, want to drop all of your classes, want to change a class, want to take the class at another time, or want to add a class, you can do it during the enrollment period. This is the first week of a long semester and the first two days of a 5-week summer session. You always need to check the academic calendar to verify the date. If you do not drop a class, you might still be enrolled and subject to grades and tuition and fees for the class. Dropping during the enrollment period allows you to receive any appropriate refund. By not dropping a class you could be charged for the class. Remember to always check your schedule to verify that you have the class and times that you want.

Dropping a Class or All of Your Classes After the Enrollment Period

Hopefully you will be able to complete the classes that you choose. But sometimes it is necessary to consider dropping a class. After the last date to enroll for a specific term, you can drop a class or all of your classes. Before you drop a class it is advised that you check with the instructor, your academic advisor or a counselor to learn the pros and cons of dropping and to investigate if there is a way to complete a class. Dropping a class can affect financial aid eligibility for the next semester, status for veteran’s benefits, and athletic eligibility. You should not assume that you will be dropped for not attending. It is your responsibility to drop a class. If you do not, you will still be enrolled and subject to a grade. By officially dropping before the deadline, you will receive a grade of “W” on your transcript.

How to Drop a Class

You can drop a class by completing the paperwork in the Registrar’s Office, by going online to T-BirdWeb Portal, or by faxing or sending a written request to the Registrar’s Office with your name, student ID number, your specific request, and your signature.
