RETENTION OF STUDENT RECORD  

Please note that it is NUI Galway policy to retain your full student history under your first (or old) NUI Galway student ID number.
You will therefore be required to register using your first/older NUI Galway student number (please do not register using your new  application number). 
There are, unfortunately, implications for your student account if you register under the wrong number; you can read these here .
