Welcome to Navigate — an undergraduate student success management system. Navigate's special sauce (ok, it's the combination of technology, research, process improvement, and predictive analytics), your goals, and Parkside's devoted faculty and staff work together to help improve outcomes for you and all students — particularly those at risk for not reaching their goals.
Cool. What does that mean to me?
Schedule Academic Advising Appointments
Using Navigate, you can view your assigned advisor's contact information to schedule an appointment or send an email. Your scheduled appointments show on your calendar’s device and you'll receive text and email reminders.
Get Important Task Reminders (To-Dos)
Navigate provides a to-do checklist of items that you need to complete and reminders of important tasks for each semester. You can also create your own To-Do items to keep track of other personal tasks and reminders.
Locate Student Resources
Did you know that there are a wealth of resources available to you at Parkside? Navigate helps you locate information on the resources that are important to you, including information on tutoring, career guidance, technology help, parking information and more!
Hand Raise allows you to raise you hand, or issue an alert on yourself, within the Navigate Student app or desktop, to get help.

Frequently asked questions
Help, I can’t log in to Navigate!
Can you get to the sign-on page? If yes and your credentials are rejected, there is an issue with your Parkside electronic ID or password. If you successfully enter your credentials on the sign-on page, but Navigate says “Uh-oh…” or “Something went wrong,” your username must not be in the software system. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name, username and email address.
What if it won't let me accept the terms or complete the survey?
If you are unable to accept the terms and conditions when you log in or complete the intake survey, we recommend that you uninstall and reinstall the app on your device.
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 settings tab, there’s a link called notification settings where you can personalize your notification preferences.
Something is wrong with “My Class Schedule.”
Course schedules are updated every 24 hours in Navigate, so check back tomorrow if you added or dropped a course that’s not appearing correctly. Contact email@example.com for other problems.
Be sure your major has been declared on your official record. Majors are updated every 24 hours in Navigate, so allow a day if your major was just declared. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for other problems.
Only one of my majors is appearing, not my second major or minor...
Navigate only displays one major, so if you're double-majoring or have a minor, your second major and/or minor will not appear in Navigate. Don't panic!
How much do I have to pay for Navigate?
Zero, nada, zilch. It costs nothing for you to download Navigate or use the desktop version!
