Connecting with your advisor using navMSU
To connect with your advisor on navMSU, click on the resources button within the app. Then, push the people tab and select the advisor you’d like to connect with. From there, you can either email your advisor or schedule an appointment. Please note that the schedule-an-appointment option only works if your advisor has posted their availability and is actively using navMSU. If you receive an error message that says your advisor has no availability, simply choose the option to email them instead.
