What is Navigate?
In Fall 2018 UAA launched Navigate (formerly Seawolf Tracks), a suite of interconnected electronic tools to help achieve our top priority: the success of our students! Seawolf Tracks includes two valuable products – a mobile app and an advising platform – to keep students on an optimal academic track, connected to their advisors and campus resources, and making progress toward graduation.
Navigate: Utilizing the Mobile App and Academic Advising
A mobile app for students, Navigate streamlines the UAA experience through content that highlights university traditions, upcoming registration deadlines and personalized “to-dos”. Students can connect with university resources through their network and access a comprehensive directory of student services.
Additionally, Navigate provides a comprehensive view of a student’s degree progress based on 10 years of historical UAA data. Advisors can see where and when a student might need help or intervention to stay on track or move to a different course. Navigate is the best way for faculty, advisors, and student support staff to communicate with one another about the progress or concerns of each student.
