MyMav Training

As an advisor, you will most likely need to use MyMav, the University’s student information system. All the pertinent information about a student, including demographic data, registration, grades, financial aid, tuition and fees, and degree plan requirements is housed in MyMav. (The MyMav Tutorials for Faculty page provides guidance for new users.)

You will need to get access to areas not necessarily needed by other faculty members.

Also, make sure to attend GMAP training.
