What is Naviance?

Naviance is your guide to the college application process. At the start, it can help you find out information about different colleges and majors. It can then help you identify when deadlines are for applications and what you have left to do in the process.

My Colleges

On this page you will find information about the college process including:

  • List of colleges that you have indicated are your favorite
  • List of colleges you have decided to apply to
  • Information to research different types of colleges
  • List of colleges who are coming to visit

Colleges I'm Thinking About

Here you can begin your research process and create a list of schools that you are interested in throughout your process. You are not required to apply to colleges you add to this list. It simply serves as a central location for your ongoing research.

College Profile Pages

This is what you continue to see as you scroll down on a colleges home page. You should look at how your GPA and test scores align with that schools average. You should also pay attention to a schools deadlines and whether or not it is on the Common App.

College Majors

From the colleges home page, you can click on MAJORS to find out what programs are offered at the particular school. This is a very important page to check if you have specific career goals in mind, as they may not offer what you want. Conversely, if you don't know what you want to do, a school with a limited number of majors may not make sense for you either.

Careers Tab

This page can help guide you in the direction of possible careers. You can take the career interest profiler to help identify possible careers that would fit you best, or you can look up careers by name.

Example: Mechanical Engineering

On this page you can find information about what the job looks like and what types of interest its best aligns with. You can also find other careers that would be a good fit if this is an interest of yours.
