If you have a NWTC laptop, login by entering your 8-digit ID# as your User Name. Enter your password (this is the same password that you use when logging into your my.NWTC account, College email, and Blackboard).

You are encouraged to change your password on a regular basis. Because the reset process requires a password reset numerical code, you must have a valid personal email address and phone number in the my.NWTC portal. If you are unsure what you have listed, you will want to check, add, or change your personal email address and phone number. It's a good idea to check this information just in case you do need a sudden password reset.

To change your password:

  1. Start by accessing
  2. Enter your NWTC ID or SSN.
  3. Enter your email address OR phone number for a text message code. 
  4. Check your personal email or text messages for a one-time-use code.
  5. Set a password that meets NWTC's password policy:
    1. Minimum length of 8 characters, containing 3 of the following:
      • Uppercase letter (A-Z)
      • Lowercase letter (a-z)
      • Number (0-9)
      • Special symbol
    2. Cannot include your name or student ID
    3. Cannot be a password previously used

If you require further assistance, contact the Help Desk toll-free at 1-866-235-5037.

Note: Changing your password changes ALL passwords: My.NWTC, MyMail, Blackboard, and computer access.
