The Account page allows you to edit your email address, password and security questions. Only one contact email address is allowed for your school.

Your initial password is assigned to your Account by NMS and can be changed if desired.

Security questions and answers are not set initially in the NMS Match System, although we recommend you add them.

The Display Name is the name of your school that is shown in displays to students and programs.
