Can you get to the school’s Sign-on webpage? If you get this far but your credentials are rejected by your university’s sign-on page, there is an issue with the school account. Try resetting your password.

If you successfully enter your credentials in the school’s SSO web page, but Navigate says “Uh-oh…” or “Something went wrong,” EAB must not have your username in their system. Contact with your full name, username, and email address.

What term of college are you in? Did you select the wrong term? Go to the More tab, under their name there’s a ink to “Update year and term.”

If your selection is correct, in-app content might not be available for you yet. You can still use other features, and many of the to-dos for other semesters may still be relevant.
