Answers to Students' Computer Questions at NIC


myNIC Login Info

Your myNIC User ID

When you access myNIC, your myNIC user ID will be the lowercase letter 'n' followed by your full student number. For example, if your student number is 0999999, your myNIC user ID will be n0999999.

Your student number is listed on your Student Card, and also at the top of your registration statement.

All North Island College student numbers are 7 digits in length. Even if your student number has leading zeroes as its left-most digits, these zeroes are included in your username

Your myNIC Password

**If after 3 attempts you still cannot log in, and have gotten stuck at a white screen, please RESET your password, and then WAIT 15 minutes before trying the new password that is emailed to you***
***After 3 incorrect tries, you will be LOCKED out of your account, please allow 15 minutes for your account to be released. Please visit our Locked Info Page for more help***

Your initial password was given to you when you registered at NIC. if you have forgotten this, or have not received it, you will need to reset your password.

Go here to Reset your Password

In order to reset your password, you will need to have an external email address on record at North Island College. An external email address is one that does not end in either 'nic.bc.ca' or 'northislandcollege.ca'.

Logging in Using Different Browsers

go thttp://www.nic.bc.ca/mynic  to login

Different browsers behave differently, but each browser should present a "dialog" box in which you can enter your username and password. If you find that you are unable to log in and you are inputting your username and password correctly, we suggest inserting nic\ before your username. This tells the computer that you wish to login to the NIC "domain" (note the Internet Explorer dialog box below states which "domain" you are trying to log in to). So you would have nic\n9999999 in the username box.

Your myNIC Password is Your Key to NIC

All your services at NIC use the same password (myNIC, Blackboard, Office 365, etc.), so if you can’t get into one, you probably can’t get in to any.

***Please note that if you have unsuccessfully logged in to myNIC three times, as a security measure your account will lock for 15 minutes. Please wait 15 minutes, and ensure that you are entering your credentials properly.***

If you have forgotten your password, go Here to Reset Your Password

Make sure to read the instructions below:

How do I change my Password?

1. Go here: Change my password

2. Enter your Student ID as follows:

nic\n9999999 (don't forget the "nic\")

3. Enter your current password (old password)

4. Enter a new password 

5. Confirm the new password

6. "Submit"

You're good to go!  


Getting Locked Out?

myNIC has a built in security feature to prevent your account from being accessed by unauthorized users. Your account will lock after 3 unsuccessful logins. This can happen to you if you have entered your information incorrectly, or have forgotten your password. If you feel you have not entered your credentials incorrectly, here are some things to try if you're still having myNIC issues:

1. Clear your internet history

2. Erase all saved passwords (forms, iCloud KeyChain, etc.)

3. Try using a "Private Browsing" tab in your internet browser (incognito mode, etc.)

4. Try using a different Browser (Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer, etc.)

5. Reset your password, wait 15 minutes, make sure your credentials are entered correctly (nic\n9999999)

Save your Login ID

After you select the login button you will be presented with a login dialog enter your credentials like nic\<your student #> followed by your password and make sure to select ‘Remember my credentials’ (Only do this on trusted computers, not public computers!)
