Have a question about the Navigate app/platform? Browse a list of our frequently asked questions from both students and staff. If you do not find an answer to your question below, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students can access Navigate in two different ways.
- Download the app on your mobile device.
- Login to the desktop version of Navigate via Wavenet. Use your Pepperdine login credentials to login to Wavenet and click on Navigate under Popular Links.
Virtually all of the features of the app and the desktop platform are the same except the Academic Planner. Students can only use the desktop platform to access the Academic Planner tool, which is used for building your four-year plan and planning your course schedule.
An academic plan is your road map to completing your degree on time. This is the plan you will follow based on your major and interests.
No, you can’t use the app to create a four year plan. You need to use the desktop platform and click on the Planner link along the top of the home page. We highly recommend using the Academic Planning tool within Navigate to work collaboratively with your advisor and create an academic plan that works best for you.
Yes, your advisor can see your academic plan, as well as offer comments or suggestions.
A pinned course is one that has been planned for the future, either by the student or by an advisor.
If a course is matched it means that it fulfills or meets a requirement of a major template.
Unfortunately, your Data Audit Report (DAR) is not reflected within the Navigate platform. You should use Wavenet to access your DAR. Our recommended practice is to use a separate window to reference your DAR while working in the Academic Planning tool.
Navigate is a planning tool that allows you to prepare for registration. You will be directed to login to Wavenet to register for classes.
Yes! You will receive a notification any time your advisor makes changes or offers a suggestion. You will be prompted to either accept or decline these, and doing so will automatically update your academic plan accordingly.
No. Once you are ready to register, you will need to click on the “register” button on the top right hand corner of the page which will open a new browser tab and take you to the shopping cart where you will enter the course numbers to register for classes.
Availability / Appointments
Your advisors are part of your care team, which you can find by clicking “Resources” and then selecting the “People” tab.
If you do not see your advisor listed, that advisor has not yet entered their availability in the Navigate platform. We recommend you message your advisor and let them know that you attempted to make an appointment on Navigate and work with them to schedule an appointment.
