Frequently asked questions

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 with your full name, username and email address.

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.

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.”  

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

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 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 for other problems.

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!

Zero, nada, zilch. It costs nothing for you to download Navigate or use the desktop version!
