Are you having trouble logging in to your Naviance account?


Naviance has updated their security measures.  Naviance is now requiring ALL students to update their Passwords to meet the new password requirements.  Students can no longer use their current password to log in.  The first step for students is to log in with their current credentials. After attempting to log in, they will be alerted via a red-alert box with instructions at the top of the screen to reset their password.  Students need to check their email for their new temporary password and instructions on how to log in.  For most students the email account associated with Naviance is the school email account.  Please make sure to check your inbox, as well as trash folder and any spam folder you have for your student email account.  Some students may have a personal email associated with their Naviance account so make sure to check those also. 


If a student is not sure, please come to the CCC for assistance.  For privacy purposes we cannot assist via email or phone and can only release the information to the student.  Please note this process works best on a computer, not a phone.







Are you planning to visit colleges and universities over Spring Break and Summer months?  Wednesday, February 19th at 6:30P the CCC will host a presentation about what you should do and need to do while you visit a campus.  Make your visit count!
