Only One of My Majors Is Appearing, Not My Second Major or Minor.

Navigate only displays one major, so if have two majors or have a minor, your second major and/or minor will not appear in Navigate.

Holds are updated every 24 hours in Navigate, so check back tomorrow and if the hold is still there please contact us at

Text Messages and SMS Response

Listed below are SMS commands you can use with Navigate, which allows you to receive or not receive texts from Navigate as you wish. 

SMS Command

Expected Response


"This service sends messages on behalf of your school such as personal messages from staff and appointment related information. Reply 'STOP' to cancel. Reply 'START' to opt in. Msg & Data rates may apply."


"You have opted out from receiving texts to this number. Please reply 'START' to opt back in. Msg & Data rates may apply."

Other text: e.g. 'hi there'

"We're sorry. This number does not support incoming messages. Reply 'HELP' for info. Reply 'STOP' to cancel. Msg & Data rates may apply."


"You have opted in to receive texts to this number. Reply 'STOP' to opt back out. Msg & Data rates may apply."
