Our Mission

Our mission is to work in a collaborative partnership with students. With respect and care, we strive to support students’ intellectual growth, empower students to clarify and attain their diverse academic, personal and professional goals, foster student retention, and promote student success. We are committed to engaging students using a wide variety of technologies and methods.

Our Vision

The Academic Success Center will be the central resource for supporting students' academic progress, by providing graduate and undergraduate students with the guidance, and the support they need to persist and graduate within two or four years; depending on their selected degree program.
An Academic Navigator can help you . . .

Academic Success Navigation is an integral part of your undergraduate or graduate education. The University strives to provide each student with the resources, guidance, and support to achieve their academic, career, and personal goals. As a student, you share responsibility for your success. Be aware of the various requirements, policies, and services.

Your Academic Navigator is available to help you with our course selections and to answer other academic questions you may have, including:

Degree Requirements -including General Education

Appropriate Resources and Referrals

Declaring or Changing Major

Course and Major/Minor Selection

Guidance on Improving the GPA

Declaring Your Major

Making a thoughtful decision in choosing a major is important. While you are not deciding on a single path for your future nor making decisions that cannot change at later points in life, it is critical to recognize that many majors enable you to develop the necessary skills to prepare for similar careers, work environments and graduate programs. When you are ready to declare your major, review the requirements for the major you have chosen and complete the online major declaration form. Be sure to check your email to confirm that the form was received and approved.

Center's Navigators

Leighton Academic Success Center offers advising and guidance to empower students to realize their full potential. For this reason, each student has an assigned professional academic Navigator so the student can establish a strong mentoring relationship with her or his Navigator, whom he or she may consult on all academic and curricular issues.

“I am an Online Academic Navigator at the University. In this role, I support all students who are studying fully online on their way to achieving their academic goals. I enjoy working on a team that values innovation, accessibility, collaboration, and student needs."

What We Do

Navigators in Online Learning are here to help fully online students maximize their college experience. We are here to assist any new student, transfer student, returning student, or currently enrolled student wanting to take exclusively online classes to reach their academic goals.

We believe that exceptional academic Navigation is essential to achieving the vision of Leighton University. Navigators in the Undergraduate Programs Office will help you make thoughtful decisions related to your academic experience, and maximize your educational and career opportunities.
