Student ID badges

Students are required have their student ID badge on them at all times while they are on campus. 

You will need to show a photo ID (such as driver's license, passport, govt. issued id, etc.) in order to receive your student ID badge. Registered students receive their first ID badges free of charge. A replacement fee of $10 (paid at the cashier's office) will be incurred if your first badge is lost or stolen.   

Computer access and one-on-one assistance

We provide students with computer access to the internet, software, email, and class course sites. 

We offer students one-on-one assistance with a variety of computer needs. We do not tutor students or do their course work, but provide guidance to help them obtain access and navigate the computers.

This includes: Navigation of course websites, eCampus and eConnect, formatting of papers, understanding the printing system, pop-up/cookie blockers, resetting passwords, and more. 

Printing, copying and scanning

Color and black-and-white printing and copies are available using the PaperCut print system. No coins are accepted, only credit cards and paper cash. No refunds are given for money added to account.

Study rooms

Study rooms are available for student use in groups of three to six people. They are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Tutoring assistance

Tutors are available by appointment and walk-in during set hours each semester. Tutors offer one-on-one and group assistance to students, free of charge. Tutoring is currently available in Accounting and Computer Programming.

Media and textbook checkout

Media items and certain course textbooks are available for checkout. Media items include educational and mainstream movies, for three-day checkout. Certain online courses have CDs and DVDs available for semester-length checkout.

The textbooks available for checkout may be different each semester.

TSI pre-assessment information

Students needing to watch the TSI video or take the quiz can do so in the Student Resource Center. You can bring your own headphone/earbuds or borrow a set from the SRC. You will need to know your student ID number to access eConnect to complete the video and quiz.

Lost and found items

If you think you have lost your student ID on campus, please check with the NLC police department and the Student Resource Center Computer Lab before paying the $10 replacement fee. Your ID might have been turned in to the lost-and-found.
