Student ID / Z-ID

As a first-year law student, you will receive your personal Account ID/Z-ID after paying your full deposit. The Admissions Office will begin assigning your Z-ID in May before your fall semester. Your Z-ID is a unique identifier and it is permanent.

Your Z-ID allows you to access NIU network applications and resources. Should you ultimately decide enroll at NIU Law in August, you will frequently utilize your Z-ID to take care of a number of critical logistical matters, such as the establishment of your university email account, the completion of your financial aid application, the acceptance of any loans you may secure as a law student, and the registration for all of your coursework during your second and third years at the College of Law.

If you have any questions regarding your Z-ID please email us at
