What is Study Buddies?

Through the Navigate Student app or desktop site (myUCA/Navigate Student), students can access a feature called Study Buddies. This feature allows you to connect with other students in each of your classes who are interested in studying together outside of class.  On the app, click on the Study Buddies icon. If using the desktop site, click on “Study Buddies.” Once Study Buddies is selected, you will see a list of the classes in which you are currently enrolled. Next to each class you will see how many other students (called buddies) are already in the group and if you have already joined. Select the course sections you are interested in joining.

How do I Schedule an Appointment?

Many academic advisors and faculty are using Navigate to set appointment availability for advising appointments and faculty office hours.  There are two ways to schedule an appointment:

  • Select Appointments on the Navigate Student app or on Navigate Student through myUCA on your PC, and locate the person with whom you want to meet.  Navigate will allow you to select a date, time, and location (office or Zoom) depending on what your advisor or professor has set up; or
  • Click on the Personal Availability link shared with you by your advisor or professor.
