Naviance Student

Engage Anywhere
Naviance Student is the new, mobile accessible Naviance experience. Available to all clients in spring 2018, Naviance Student will replace Family Connection for the 2018-19 school year.

Naviance Student makes it easier than ever for students to answer the questions that will shape their future: Who am I? What do I want to be? How will I get there? and How will I succeed? The new design delivers the power of Naviance to students’ fingertips with familiar and intuitive tools that personalize and simplify the college and career planning process.

Introducing Naviance Student with Monica Morrell, General Manager of Naviance

  • Accessible Anywhere: As a tablet and smartphone-ready experience, Naviance Student is available where students are - on their devices.
  • More Engaging: The modern, student-centric design brings college and career exploration and planning to life.
  • Easy to Use: With a familiar layout and workflow, educators and students will find Naviance Student easy to use.

Naviance Student will be available in spring 2018 for no additional charge. Family Connection will be available, in parallel, for the remainder of the 2017-18 school year. All schools and districts are encouraged to pilot Naviance Student with students starting this spring. Any schools that have not upgraded to Naviance Student will be automatically upgraded in August 2018 at no charge. After the upgrade, Family Connection will no longer be available. All data entered in Family Connection will be automatically transitioned to Naviance Student.
