Drop-in Advising

Check in virtually for your appointment

""

Virtual check-in is available for scheduled appointments and drop-in advising!

Navigate will alert your Academic Advisor that you arrived for your scheduled appointment or for drop-in advising. Current students may use these instructions to check-in online.

Check-in for in-person advising —
 

  1. At the start of your appointment time, use a phone or computer to visit your Navigate home page: https://uwb.campus.eab.com.

    Click on the button to "Check-in Online." This will alert your advisor that you have arrived. Your advisor will meet you at the UW1-360 entryway as soon as possible and walk with you to their work space.

  6. Click the button to “Drop-in Online” or “Check-in with first available” advisor. These buttons appear if drop-in hours are available at the exact time you are logged in to Navigate. Clicking on this button will notify your advisor that you want to connect. If your advisor is not available, you will only see their drop-in schedule so you can visit again later.

  7. After checking-in, go to the Zoom link or dial the phone number provided by your advisor for drop-in support. You will be added to a virtual waiting room and your advisor will be notified that you are waiting. You cannot see how many other students are ahead of you in line but your advisor will add you to the meeting as soon as possible in the order in which you joined the waiting room. Wait times vary and can be up to 15 minutes.

  8. If you can no longer wait to meet with an advisor and wish to remove yourself from the drop-in line, return to your Navigate home screen and click the "Appointments" button. Then, click on the "Dashboard" link at the top of the new window. Finally, click on the blue "check-out" button next to the upcoming appointment. You will get a confirmation message indicating that you have been successfully checked out.
