Log in to the NLU Student Portal and click on the Student Email tab to access your NLU email.

What is my NLU ID? How do I find it?
NLU has provided you with an NLU ID which you can view in the Welcome tab of your NLU Student Portal. For your protection and rather than using your Social Security Number, it is expected that you will have this number available when you correspond with us. Please email us here if you have any questions about the use of NLU IDs.

How do I find a copy of my grades?
Current and recent students can view and print a copy of their grades through their NLU Student Portal. Click on the Student Services tab and select “View Unofficial Transcript.” Former students should request a transcript.

How do I request a transcript?
Official transcripts are available upon request (if all financial obligations to the University have been met). Click here for details on how to order a transcript.

How can I get enrollment verification for insurance, reimbursement, or loan purposes?
You can print an official enrollment verification from your NLU Student Portal. Please see the Verifications and Deferments webpage for detailed instructions.
