When you are admitted to the University of Saskatchewan, you are automatically given a Network Services ID (NSID). This is usually 3 letters (from your name) and 3 random numbers (example - tlm159). This NSID allows you access to PAWS, an online portal to email, calendars, "my courses", "my files" and PAWS groups. You can also access registration, transcripts, grades, course home pages, library tools and financial information (online pay stubs).
