Advising Frequently Asked Questions


Launching in January 2020! The UW System has partnered with EAB to implement Navigate, a student success management system.

Navigate is a software platform designed to enhance academic advising, mentoring, and coordinated student support through:

  • Smart guidance for students at pivotal points to clarify next steps and a path to progress and degree completion
  • Appointment scheduling, communication, and follow up from units across campus to promote increased collaboration and accountability
  • Proactive, coordinated support, and intervention campus-wide to refer students toward resources necessary for success
  • Analytics that reveal opportunities to reduce barriers, identify intervention needs, and support student services

This system will empower students with information and tools and help advisors, faculty, and staff build more effective, timely support to foster student success.
