Advanced Search FAQs

(under development)

Which students are in Navigate?

Navigate is populated with admitted, pre-matriculated, and matriculated students, and students who have not yet graduated (don’t have a completed program yet). A search will result in the students as defined here who meet the conditions the user sets in the search.

For many of the search variables (for example, “Categories”), there are many value choices. Do I have to scroll through the whole list of possible values to select the ones I want?

No, just start typing the name of the value you are looking for and the list will be limited to the values that meet your search criteria.

How do I search by undergraduate major or graduate program?

Use the Area of Study accordion section to search by major. Remember to select the Macaulay Honors College version of the major (if desired) as a separate value (e.g., English – BA; MHC English – BA).

How do I search by minor?

In Navigate, Minors are listed within the Categories in the Student Information accordion section. Remember to click the “+” on the Categories search box to expand to use AND or NOT searches.
