National Merit Scholar Community

For those who have already been awarded a NMSC scholarship in past years, I need some assistance in joining the National Merit Scholarship Community at nationalmerit.org.

I've already asked the Community Administrator, whose automated email back to me was not at all helpful.

If you browse the nationalmerit.org site to the "For Scholars" section, then "NMSC Scholarship Community", then "Register", you'll be brought to a form to search your scholarship record. I bring up my file fine, then it asks for:

"Birthday or other Security ID"

Well, my birthday, in the format they provide (mmddyy) doesn't work, any I've tried all the number identifiers I've been given throughout the competition by NMSC, and none work.

If anyone has successfully joined this community, do you know what "Security ID" they are referencing here? Thanks in advance.

    My son just tried to do his, and it wouldn't accept his DOB, either. So, there is a link where you can report this...try this.]

    Or, call NMCorp...847-866-5100

    Have you been selected as a scholar yet? Not just a finalist?

    My son is a scholar from a previous year, and his DOB isn't working either. His record can be located, but it's not taking his DOB.
