Course Navigator

If you have had an online, flex, or hybrid course, you may have been introduced to a course navigator. A Navigator is a direct link to help you connect to non-content questions and resources. The navigator will be embedded in your courses via Canvas and Zoom. They can assist you with connection to college resources, such as tutoring, academic coaching, and library services.  

Navigators CANNOT assist you with instructional questions (please speak to your instructor for that), but they can help you be a successful student.
