Naviance is an American college and career readiness software provider that partners with high schools and other K–12 institutions to provide students with college planning and career assessment tools.
- Naviance provides functionality to school counselors to track the progress of individual students, communicate and collaborate with students and families, or create reports on their entire student population.
- Naviance’s integration with “The Common Application” facilitates the submission of college applications, as well as online submission of transcripts, school forms and recommendations through Naviance eDocs.

- Q: We are new to edocs and are trying to upload an XML file to the multiple transcript manager. This worked fine and great when uploading a file that contained two students. When we tried to load a whole class, we received this error (below) but we are unclear on what fields are not working properly. Has anyone experienced this before?
- A: I upload them as Pdfs in a bulk file of around 80 students at a time. We have never been able to load them any other way and we’ve had Naviance for three years.
- If you are a Naviance user who has integrated with the Common App, can you let me know how you are sending recommendation letters for outside recommenders? And does EVERY teacher need to complete the recommender form before their letter can be sent? (Counselor Talk, September 2018)
- I was told [by a Naviance representative] that ALL documents had to processed from the teachers and all recommenders prior to us being able to send the transcripts. I was also told that we should push educators rather than outside recommenders for this exact reason. I informed the person I was speaking to that we always push for any professional reference, but he stated that Naviance was set up so that teacher recommenders can be processed.
- Naviance vs. Indiana Career Explorer (from Counselor Talk, February 2018)
- I like Naviance and the college/career exploration it provides. The career interest survey looks a little clunky but it does a good job of helping students see what they might be interested in. After they complete it, they can see what majors are related to the career that popped up for them. They can then see what colleges offer that particular major/program.
- Naviance integrates with the Common App for college, and it can be both helpful and frustrating. It is easy to send all documents, but sometimes it doesn’t work and it can be difficult to determine why it didn’t work. The career exploration does look like a website from the 90s and it isn’t all that interesting to look at. It does what it needs to do though.
- We use the career explorer section of Naviance often. We go through with freshman and revisit it sophomore year. When we meet individually with students, it is helpful to refer to and see if the students are actually interested in whatever the results of the survey were.
