Remote Advising and Navigate Use.

Navigate can be accessed at any time by clicking on the Navigate logo located on the myUVM Employee page or by going directly to the advisor platform. Advisees are listed on an advisor's Staff Home page, which is visible upon login. Advisors can also use the Quick Search (magnifying glass icon in the top right corner of the home page) to find additional students.

Within Navigate, advisors can:

  • View a student’s course history (Student Profile > Class Info)
  • Access students’ degree audits through a live link (Student Profile > Links > Degree Audit)
  • See what interactions a student may have had with other advisors by viewing summary reports and/or notes (Student Profile > History)
  • Enter information based on an advising conversation with a student (Student Profile > Current Alerts > Report on Appointment)
  • Upload relevant documents about a student’s academic pursuits, etc. (Student Profile > Current Alerts > Report on Appointment)
  • Communicate with advisees via email or text*, either individually or as a whole:
    • Individuals: Student Profile > Current Alerts > Message Student
    • All advisees: Staff Home > Actions > Send Message
    • How to message students: step-by-step guide

*If a student does not have a cell phone number on file in Banner, text messages sent via Navigate will automatically be sent to their email address. Responses to text messages are received via the faculty/professional advisor's email address. Responses can also be found in the Conversations tab (envelope icon) in Navigate.
