Dear East Meck Students and Parents:

Naviance is a web based planning and advising system that allows students, parents and counselors build individualized success plans for college and career readiness. As graduating East Meck students apply and are accepted to colleges, data on their experiences will be gathered and offered to new students as they research their post high school options

Naviance manages and tracks all aspects of the college admissions process for both four year and two year colleges. It also has various resources for the research of potential career paths. Any senior applying to college that requests a transcript will need to register with Naviance so we can send your transcripts electronically and you will be able to know in real time the status of each of your applications. You must continue to fill out a transcript request form that you can pick up in the school counseling office or download a copy from the School Counseling Webpage that is found on the East Meck Webpage under SENIORS!!
Naviance will help all students build on line resumes, search for colleges or careers that meet your specific need. You will be able to research college or career requirements so you can plan accordingly and learn when specific colleges are visiting East Meck.

Underclassmen and parents can also use Naviance to complete career inventories and search college options. The demographic information in Naviance is uploaded from Powerschool so parents must ensure that all contact information, e-mail and phone are correct in order to use this program. Parents can register for a Naviance account or can work with his/her student using the student account.

You can access Naviance anywhere you have access to the internet. Type in
Your login information for Naviance is your students first name.last name and the password is your student's School ID number.

If your school uses Naviance to submit school forms, applicants will submit the FERPA decision using the Common App account, NOT his or her Naviance account. The student must go to the Common App first, then complete the FERPA waiver. The FERPA question is found within the 'Assign Recommenders' tab of the application and the 'release authorization' link must be checked with the FERPA decision. Students can only see the 'Assign Recommenders' tab after you have added one school to the account. Students must add counselors and teachers through Naviance but must add "other recommenders" through the Common App. Counselors and teachers will log in through Naviance to complete recommendation forms. There is link to a video describing this process on the student's Naviance page.

If you have any additional questions please contact your School Counselor.
