Common FAQ's

Your T-Bird Web Portal is your online access to NMJC. In the portal you can access your NMJC email, Canvas Online Classroom, NelNet Payment Portal, and Self-Service Banner (SSB) where you can add and drop courses and see your grades online among other tools and resources.

To login for the first time you will need your student ID (A#), date of birth, and the last four digits of your social security number. You will receive a new login ID and you will create a new password. Please click on the First Time User Button to go through the setup process. (Note: If you have previously used the T-Bird Web portal (prior to May 25, 2018) you will still be required to set up your T-Bird Web Portal as a FIRST TIME USER, as we have switched to a new single sign on site).

(Note: After clicking register, make sure to check your Student Detail Schedule to show all classes you registered for are showing. Not every class can be registered for online. Some classes require Instructor Approval and/or pre-requisite requirements. Please contact the Help Desk for more information.)

To Drop/Withdraw from a Course:

If DROPPING or WITHDRAWING from a course, under the student and registration tabs, click drop a course. This will show all of the courses you are registered in for the selected term.

All copies of official and unofficial transcripts are requested through the National Student Clearing House. No paper requests or orders are accepted, and any phone calls requesting transcripts will be directed to the online ordering website. There are several different delivery and pick-up options that you can choose from when requesting copies. Both official and unofficial transcripts are $5.00 per copy, regardless of delivery method. Copies can be paid for by major credit or debit card on the National Student Clearing House order site. To ensure that your order goes through, you MUST SIGN the online Paperless Consent Form. If you need help with your transcript request orders, click the Transcript Ordering Help link at the bottom of the page or contact the National Student Clearinghouse at 703-742-4200.

If you haven't already taken a placement test (ACT, SAT, or Accuplacer), potential NMJC students are allowed to take the Accuplacer at the NMJC Testing Center, free of charge, for the first attempt. The test is required for students who have not previously taken a placement test and who have not taken their first college level math and English courses. Accuplacer assesses math, English, and reading competencies.

After the first free attempt, re-takes are $5 per section, or $15 for the entire assessment.

The testing center will proctor Accuplacer Monday through Friday 8AM-5PM. The last full Accuplacer testers admitted will be at 3PM, although individual section testers may be admitted until 4PM.

Picture ID's (drivers license, school ID with picture, etc.) are required to test.

If you were dropped from one or all of your classes (without you personally initiating the drop), it is likely that the 48 hour window of payment opportunity had passed. After 48 hours from registration, if payment is not made (either paid in full, payment plan set up or financial aid finalized and in place), the registration system will automatically purge you from the course(s).

If there is space in the section, to re-enroll you must contact the Help Desk or re-enroll online.
