Frequently Asked Questions

Registration

I cannot find my alumni record. What should I do?
If you cannot find your alumni record, submit an Alumni Directory Request for Assistance

Where can I find my NWU ID Number?
Your NWU ID Number appears next to your name on the label of the Archways Alumni Magazine. If you cannot find a recent copy, submit an Alumni Directory Request for Assistance

Is my “graduation year” the same as my “reunion year”?
Your reunion year is four years after your enrollment as a first-year, full-time student. So, if your first year was 1980, your reunion year would be 1984. Your graduation year could be later, for example, if you changed majors or had a double major, requiring extra semesters to complete.
