Questions that are asked repeatedly
What exactly is the Navigate Student system?
Free to use both online and as a mobile app, Navigate Student is designed to be your go-to resource for all things related to Tyler. You may communicate with your faculty advisor through the use of Navigate Student, be informed about the next steps you need to take, organize your calendar for each semester, register for classes, and track your academic progress.
You may access Navigate on your computer by logging into myTyler, or you can download the mobile app for your device from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store. Note: Internet Explorer does not support EAB Navigate.
Through the use of Navigate Student, you will be able to register for your classes. After you have constructed your schedule using Planner, you will be able to select the “Register” option to complete the registration process for Tyler when that time comes.
How can I log in to the Navigate Student system?
You may either access it by logging into myTyler and clicking on the Navigate Student button, or you can download the Navigate mobile app to your mobile device (important note: the mobile app does not support some features).
Is it possible for me to schedule a meeting with my academic advisor through Navigate Student?
Yes! The appointment tool in Navigate Student allows you to examine your advisor’s availability and then book a meeting with them at a time that is convenient for both of you. To schedule an appointment, navigate to the tab labeled “Appointment,” then select the icon labeled “Schedule an Appointment.” A reminder will be added to your To-Do list as soon as a new appointment has been scheduled for you.
I was wondering whether I could use Navigate Student to lay out my class schedule.
Yes! You will be able to construct an academic plan with the aid of the Planner tool, which will assist you in visualizing how you will be able to finish your major and map out future semesters. While you are working in Planner, you will be able to view the courses that you have completed, the courses that you are now enrolled in, and the courses that you still need to do.
When registration begins, you will be able to utilize your plan, in conjunction with a calendar that enables you to highlight times when you are engaged in other activities, to construct a timetable that is tailored to your life. To access Navigate Student, a desktop computer is required for the sign-in process; the mobile app does not provide access to the platform.
Will my planner reflect every class that counts toward my major?
If you declare a major at any point during or after the 2019-2020 academic year at your college, the courses associated with that major will be loaded into Planner automatically. If you declare your major before the 2019-2020 academic year, you will not be able to view your courses without actively looking for them. The planner, on the other hand, may still be used. To accomplish this, you must first obtain a list of your remaining classes from SIS, and then construct your schedule while searching for those classes in Planner.
I need to register for my classes, but I’m not sure whether Navigate Student will let me.
Yes! Through the use of Navigate Student, you will be able to register for your classes. After you have constructed your schedule using Planner, you will be able to select the “Register” option to complete the registration process for Tyler when that time comes. Can you assist me in locating materials that I might want using Navigate Student? Yes! From the Navigate Student Homepage that has been assigned to you, you can access a directory of both physical and digital materials that are essential to your success. You can obtain information on the Academic Resource Center (ARC), the libraries, and a great deal more by going there.
