The Major Explorer allows students to sort out their goals, preferences, and areas of interest before providing a recommended course of study. This feature functions as a simple intake survey that only takes a few minutes to complete and is able to be retaken at any time by the user.
The Plan portion of Navigate is the Academic Planning section of the tool, which allows students to course plan for both their current and future terms. Planned courses for the term appear on the left and show available sections when clicked on. Students have the ability to see course specifics, such as the instructor, class location, and available seats.
The Scheduling feature allows students to set their preferences for where they’d like to take classes, block any unavailable time in their schedules, and easily register for classes with one click.
