Access & Training

Navigate logo

To request access to Navigate, our academic advising platform, you will need to complete an Access to Student Records form and turn it into the registrar’s office for approval and processing. In the Additional Notes or Comments section just before the required signatures section, please include why you are specifically requesting this access as it relates to your role within the University. Your request will not be considered if this information is not included in your form nor if the approval signature (Dean/Department Head only) is not appropriately signed. Once completed, email the form to with FERPA compliant information to be reviewed. Prior to turning in your form into the Registrar's office, be sure make sure your FERPA training is up to date, as your request, if approved, will not be granted until you successfully complete the training. If approved, you will be added to the Navigate Canvas training site to complete the mandatory training. Once you have successfully taken the training, you will be assigned the appropriate role in Navigate. If you have any questions about this process, please email Lauren Thomas.
