The GradesFirst Advising Tool is being used by VSB and the Office of Academic Support for Athletics. Villanova’s other colleges are not using the tool.
GradesFirst is designed to facilitate advising, tutoring, and assisting students to help them be successful.
The GradesFirst tools include:
A nice feature of GradesFirst is that any office that works with students may use GradesFirst. For example, the Office of Academic Support for Athletics uses GradesFirst to manage its support services for student-athletes. GradesFirst also includes security tools to insure only authorized users have access to a student’s file and only to information in that file relevant to the particular office. Finally, we import information from our BANNER system into GradesFirst.
Villanova uses single sign-on, so once you sign-in to Villanova’s MyNOVA you may access GradesFirst as follows:
You also can access GradesFirst using the GradesFirst Link.
This section will soon have several short training videos to show students and advisors how to do the basics in GradesFirst.
