Only you and your academic advising team. Your professor cannot access Jayhawk GPS to view your advising information unless they also serve as your academic advisor. Even if your parents have delegate access through Enroll & Pay, they are unable to see anything in Jayhawk GPS. Advisors that you are assigned to will be able to see any appointments you’ve scheduled, your academic record (e.g. final grades, past and present courses), and notes from advising appointments.

Notification settings can be changed under the Settings icon within the Navigate Student app. 

You can only schedule appointments when your advisor lists availability. If they are fully booked or have not updated their availability, you may not be able to schedule an appointment with them. Call or email Jayhawk Academic Advising (785-864-2834 or for assistance with scheduling an appointment. 

You are assigned an academic advisor based on your major or pathway. Please contact Jayhawk Academic Advising (785-864-2834 or if you are unsure who your assigned advisor is and how to schedule an appointment. 

You are able to cancel appointments through Jayhawk GPS by selecting the appointment and clicking cancel. If you prefer to call, make sure you contact Jayhawk Academic Advising by calling 785-864-2834.

Sometimes advisors have to cancel because they are away from the office unexpectedly. If this happens, you will get instructions on how to reschedule or a proposed time for rescheduling via email. 

If you missed a scheduled advising appointment, your advisor will mark you as a no-show. Your advisor may reach out to you to reschedule, but this is not guaranteed. If you are unable to make it to an appointment, you should cancel or reschedule your appointment through Jayhawk GPS, or call Jayhawk Academic Advising 785-864-2834 prior to missing the appointment. Cancelling or rescheduling appointments in advance allows another student to get in to meet with the advisor and helps the advisor ensure they can meet with as many students as possible.
