myNIC Login Info
Your myNIC User ID
Your myNIC user ID has a 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 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.
Your myNIC Password
Logging in Using Different Browsers
go to https://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.
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'.
