From attending orientation to preparing for finals, now there’s a clear timeline of what you need to do. Within each task, Navigate connects you to the links and resources you need to get things done.

2.Find the Right Fit : Navigate’s Major Exploration tool connects your interests and goals to the right major at the college—fill out a short survey and Navigate takes it from there!

How Can I Start Using Navigate?

You can download Navigate in the App Store or Google Play by searching for “Navigate Student.” For the desktop version, point your browser to  washburn.navigate.eab.com and select Log In. Use the same username and password that you use for all your other university accounts.

How Much Do I Have to Pay for It?

Zero, nada, zilch. It costs nothing for you to download Navigate or use the desktop version! However, that doesn’t mean that your friends at other schools can download it too—we specially partnered with Navigate to customize it for your Washburn University experience .

Help, I can’t log in to Navigate!

Can you get to the school’s Sign-on webpage? If you get this far but your credentials are rejected by your university’s sign-on page, there is an issue with the school account. Try resetting your password.

If you successfully enter your credentials, but Navigate says “Uh-oh…” or “Something went wrong,” EAB must not have your username in their system. Contact  SSChelp@washburn.edu with your full name, username, and email address.

The Steps I’m seeing don’t look right to me…

What term of college are you in? Did you select the wrong term? Go to the More tab, under their name there’s a link to “Update year and term.”

If your selection is correct, Journey content might not be available for you yet. You can still use other features, and many of the Journeys for other semester may still be relevant.

What does it mean if a Step is an “autocomplete task”?

Some important Steps in Navigate can be automatically marked as complete based on the school’s official record stored in the student information system (SIS). You can mark these Steps complete, but they will remain in the Path until the school has an official record of this Step being complete in the SIS.

What do I do if my app is frozen or acting weird?

Try a hard close and relaunch the app.

  • For iOS, double click the Home button then swipe the app preview away to “hard close.”
  • On Android, open the app manager view and slide the app preview away to “hard close.”

How do I change my notification settings?

In the More tab, there’s a link called Notification Settings where you can personalize your notification preferences.

I just resolved a Hold, why is it still showing up?

Holds are updated every 24 hours in Navigate, so check back tomorrow to see if it’s successfully been resolved in Navigate. If the issue persists, contact SSChelp@washburn.edu.
