Raptor ID system

The new Raptor System, the visitor check-in and check-out system, is now in place at both campuses. All visitors must bring a photo ID (driver’s license) to the office when checking in. Once your ID has been scanned into the system you will not have to go through this process again, but will need to simply check-in and check-out in the office. You will receive a sticker to wear while you are in the building. We appreciate your patience with our new system, but feel you understand that safety is a priority for all of our NPMM students and staff.
