BVU Mobile Apps
BVU has two mobile apps available: the Buena Vista University app and Navigate Student. Both are available in the App Store and Google Play.
The Buena Vista University app contains information and resources for faculty/staff, students, families/guests, and alumni. Navigate Student allows students to communicate and collaborate with their advisors.
Resources and Information
Buena Vista University App
The Buena Vista University app serves as one convenient location for our students, faculty and staff, families and guests, and alumni to access information and resources. It serves as another way to stay connected with BVU!
This app includes the COVID-19 Symptom Tracker, required for BVU students, faculty, and staff.
- Using the COVID-19 Symptom Tracker
BVU students and employees are required to complete the COVID-19 Symptom Checker before leaving their residence hall room, arriving on campus, participating in any campus activity, or reporting to work. Tap “COVID-19 Assessment," answer all the questions accurately, and submit. You will need a thermometer to take your temperature,
Users will receive either a green check or red X. A green check is your “cleared to enter” pass to campus for the day. When arriving on campus and throughout the day, students and employees will be asked to show their green check in order to participate in daily activities such as attending class, reporting to their office, or entering Campus Dining. Those receiving a red X must take the following steps:
Employees: Stay home, contact their direct supervisor, and reach out to a medical provider for further evaluation.
Students: Stay in their residence hall room and contact Health Services or Athletic Training (if in season) for further evaluation.
Advising for Students
Navigate Student, an app created by BVU and EAB, allows students to easily communicate and collaborate with faculty advisors. The app helps students schedule appointments with their advisors and provide crucial reminders and alerts to keep them on track.
- Navigate Features and Installation
Your to-dos, reminders, appointments, and class schedule are automatically generated and added to Navigate student. Also, coming soon we'll be adding the ability to schedule appointments with your advisor - right from the app!
