Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic and the need for practicing social distancing, all advising appointments moved to virtual appointments only in Spring 2020. However, as of Summer 2021, advising units and departments are beginning to transition back to campus. Some advisors are now beginning to offer in-person appointments as well as virtual appointments. Your advisor will be in contact related to how your appointment will take place. Please contact your advising unit if you have further appointment questions.

Schedule an Appointment (via Navigate Student App)
Navigate Student is the companion app to Jayhawk GPS. It provides easy access to advisor appointment scheduling. You can also cancel your appointment times using the app.
After downloading the app select “University of Kansas” as the institution. This should redirect you to the KU login page. Login with your KUID and password. Note, when you update your KU password you will have to login again to the app. The first time you log in, you will be asked a series of questions and then land on the main app screen. If you have a hold, the banner at the top of the screen will be red.
To make an appointment click on the appointments button on the homepage. Then click on the "Schedule Appointment" button at the bottom of the screen.
Then select what type of appointment you would like to make (academic advising), service type (reason for appointment), and preferred date. Remember, all advising appointments are taking place via phone or video conferencing at this time.
If you have multiple advisors at different locations, you will be able to select the advising office you need. If you do not have multiple advisors at multiple locations, the system will bypass this step.
Based on the date you select, available appointment times will appear from that date forward. Click on a specific time you would like to meet. If you have multiple advisors at one location, you can filter by individual advisor if you click on "View individual availabilities."
This brings up a details and confirmation page. Review the details, select the type of reminder you want, then scroll down, and click the "Schedule" button. You will see a confirmation page when you successfully make an appointment.
