After You Register


After the online registration process is complete, you will receive a confirmation by email which will include the Match Code Number(s) for each track registered for the Match.

You should provide the Match Code Number(s) of your track(s) to each of your applicants, as the Match Code Number(s) uniquely identify your track(s) in the Match. This is particularly relevant for programs that are offering more than one track in the Match.

Updating Your Program and Track Information

Once you are registered for the Match, you can log into the NMS Match System to update your program or track information. This includes modifying the number of positions offered by a track in the Match, changing the description of a track, adding an additional track to your program, withdrawing a track from the Match if you no longer intend to offer any positions in the track, or modifying your contact information.
