How to locate your username and password
Your username is immediately provided to you once you have submitted your application to Tyler online. Ensure you store your username in a safe place.
If you need to look up your username, use the username lookup tool. Note, however, that the information you provide must match exactly what you used when you completed your application to Tyler. This includes using your full name or nickname as appropriate to fit your application. The system is also sensitive to spaces in names and hyphenated names.
If you encounter problems and cannot access your username online, visit the Help Hub to get live support.
You use one password for all of your accounts at the College managed through myTyler: the Student Information System, Canvas, and VCCS student email. If you are a new student, you are provided with a temporary password to submit your admissions application.
If you are not provided with a temporary password, you can still retrieve your password. The first time you log in, you will be prompted to change your password immediately for security purposes.
The system will direct you to change your password and select a security question. You will need to complete this process and set your password before you can access your accounts.

Frequently asked questions
What is Navigate Student?
Navigate Student is a free online tool and mobile app that acts as your guide to Tyler. Use Navigate Student to connect to your faculty advisor, stay updated on your next steps, plan your schedule each semester, register for classes, and visualize your academic progress.
You can access Navigate from your computer through myTyler or download the mobile app from the Apple App or Google Play stores. Note: Internet Explorer does not support EAB Navigate.
You can register for your classes using Navigate Student. When Tyler’s registration period is open, you’ll be able to click on the “Register” button after building your schedule in Planner.
How do I access Navigate Student?
You can log into myTyler, and click on the Navigate Student icon to access it, or you can download the Navigate mobile app (important note: the mobile app does not support some features).
Can I make an appointment with my advisor through Navigate Student?
Yes! Navigate Student offers an appointment feature that will let you view your advisor’s availability and schedule an appointment with them. To make an appointment, click on the Appointment tab and click the Schedule an Appointment button. Once a new appointment is set, you will receive a reminder on your To-Do list.
Can I plan my class schedules using Navigate Student?
Yes! You can use the Planner feature to create an academic plan that will help you map out future semesters and visualize how you can complete your major. While in Planner, you can see which classes you’ve finished, which ones you are currently enrolled in, and which ones you need to take.
When registration opens, you can use your plan, along with a calendar that allows you to block out times when you are busy, to build a schedule that fits your life. You must log in to Navigate Student using a desktop device; it is not accessible through the mobile app.
Will all the classes in my major appear in my Planner?
If you declare a major during or after the college’s 2019-2020 academic year, your major’s courses will automatically load into Planner. You will not automatically see your courses if you declare your major before the 2019-2020 academic year. You can still use Planner, however. To do so, you must get the list of your remaining courses from SIS and then search for them in Planner and build your schedule.
Can I register for my classes in Navigate Student?
Yes! You can register for your classes using Navigate Student. When Tyler’s registration period is open, you’ll be able to click on the “Register” button after building your schedule in Planner.
