To login to MyNIU, you’ll use your NIU account ID (Z-ID) that you were assigned after you submitted your application.
You can find MyNIU at the top of the NIU homepage under “Quick Links.” On myniu.niu.edu, click on the button labeled “MyNIU Student System.”
Information about your newly created Z-ID and password was sent to the personal email account you used when you applied to NIU. The instructions outlined in that email are essential to your ability to access your MyNIU account.
If you don’t know your Z-ID, you can use the Find My Account ID tool on the NIU website.
- Enter the email address you used to apply for admissions to NIU.
- If the email entered can be matched to a MyNIU account, a message will be sent to your alternate (non-NIU) email address with your Z-ID as well as the initial password configuration needed to reset your password and securely register your NIU account.
- The initial password expires after only 5 uses, so change it immediately at password.niu.edu. The new password you choose will expire after 365 days.
