Navigate Support Microsite

Navigate, An Education Advisory Board’s (EAB) Student Success Management System, is an enterprise-level technology that links administrators, advisors, deans, faculty, other staff, and students in a Coordinated Care Network designed to help schools proactively manage student success and deliver a Return on Education.

Beginning the Fall 2022 Semester, the Office of Student Success (OSS) debuted the first phase of Delaware State University’s (DSU) implementation of EAB’s Navigate. As the project progresses there will be more phases, additional care units, and many areas included in the usage of Navigate as we work to give our students, the most holistic support in achieving success here at Delaware State.

This support microsite will be the place to provide documented support and answers in assisting DSU Navigate Users.  If assistance is needed after visiting this page, please email Navigate [at] desu.edu with a screenshot of the issue/error message, Your Full Name, Email or Best contact, and D Number.
