I started an online application and forgot my password. How do I get back in?
You create a Login ID and PIN when you start the online Application for Admission. The Login and PIN are only used for the online application. If you fully submitted your application, you will receive instructions by email for setting up your MyNFC portal, which is different from your online application account. If you didn’t finish your online application and need back in, you may call Admissions at 850-973-1622 or 850-973-9405 for help with your login name, but we will not know the password you created.

Check the email account you provided on your online application and see if you received a confirmation immediately after tapping submit.
