2023 Naviance Opt-Out Window Ends Sept. 29

Seattle Public Schools offers an annual month-long window for families to opt their students out of using Naviance, the online college and career planning tool.

This year’s window ends Sept. 29. Scroll down for how to opt out.


Students in grades 6-12 primarily use Naviance to explore colleges and career paths, analyze talents and skills with personality and career assessments, and understand financial options for college. Other features include resume and portfolio development for job and college applications.

Students have year-round access to Naviance. Parents and guardians can also create accounts for view-only access, plus the ability to add colleges to your student’s prospective college list. Naviance can help families research career and college possibilities with your student, help your student take ownership of the college and career planning process, and stay up-to-date on time sensitive dates.
