You can add a class to your schedule using the LOUIE Student
Center during open enrollment dates. Add/drop dates can be found on the NAU Academic Calendar,
and your personal open enrollment dates can be found by clicking on Enrollment Appointment in the right
column of your LOUIE Student Center. See the tutorial called, View My Enrollment Dates if
you need more information, or contact your advisor.
If you are ready to Add a Class, follow the
instructions in this tutorial.
Click the Enroll
hyperlink under the Academics heading
on the left hand side in your LOUIE Student Center, as shown framed in red
in Figure 1 below. If you do not see Enroll or the list of hyperlinks underneath the Academics heading, click on the green triangle in front of the
word Academics to display them.
Next you will be directed to select the term for which you
want to add a class as shown below in Figure 2. Select the appropriate term and
then click Continue.
On the “Add Classes -
Select classes to add” page, you will see several sections, all framed in
red in Figure 3 below. The top of the page holds the
navigation bar. This allows you to complete different functions by clicking on
the tabs associated with the function you wish to perform. For this tutorial we will stay within the "add" tab.
Under the navigation bar, there is a Change Term section, and directly below this, there is a “Shopping Cart” for the selected term.
This is the section where the classes you add will be displayed. Directly to
the right of the cart there are two options for adding courses to the cart: Enter Class Number and Find Classes. See the tutorial called, Search for Classes if you need more information on how
In Figure 3 you will also
see the current class schedule for your term at the bottom of the page. The one
shown below is empty, but if you are adding a class to your schedule in the
current term, your class schedule will show the courses you are enrolled in.
If you know the course number of the class you wish to take,
insert it into the text box under Enter
Class Number and click enter. If
you wish to look up classes, select the Class
Search radi0 button under Find
Classes and click search.
After selecting Class
Search and clicking enter you will be navigated to the Enter Search Criteria page (Figure 4).
There are multiple options to choose from to narrow your
Subject (outlined in green) allows you to choose a subject like mathematics
(MAT), anthropology (ANT), humanities (HUM), etc. If you are looking for a
class with a specific subject this is where you would select it.
Number (outlined in blue) allows you to enter the course number you are
looking for if you know the specific number that corresponds to a course you
wish to take. For example, if you knew you needed to take a Bio 181 class as a
major requirement you would select “is exactly” from the drop down menu and then
type 181 in the text box next to it. If you knew that you need to take courses
above the 200 level, you could select “greater than or equal to from the drop
down menu and input 200 into the text box.
- Campus (outlined
in purple) allows you to select the campus you wish to take your courses at. If
you do not input a campus location, it assumes that you are on the main campus
in Flagstaff. Also here you can choose to select the button for Online classes. If this is selected then
the courses that show up when you accept will only be online courses.
Designation (outlined in orange) allows you to select the specific
requirements that you are looking to fill within a course, whether they are
University Requirements (like Social and Political Worlds, Cultural
Understanding, or Ethnic Diversity) or broad Major Requirements required of
every major (like a junior writing requirement or a senior capstone course).
Career (outlined in yellow) allows you to filter courses to show only
undergraduate or graduate courses.
Below all the criteria there is another bar titled Additional Search Criteria with a green
triangle in front of it all outlined in black in Figure 4.
If you select the green triangle on the Additional Search Criteria bar (shown above) a whole new set of
narrowing options will open below it a seen in Figure 5.
These search parameters will allow you to designate specific
days of the weeks and times that you are looking for, enter the last name of an
instructor to find classes offered by them, enter the code assigned to the
specific course, a keyword or title of the course, number of units or credits
you wish the course to have, starting month of the of the course, and the mode
When you are done selecting your parameters, click Search to submit or click Clear Criteria to start over.
If we choose to look up an Anthropology (ANT) 101 class and
click search, on the class Search Results
page, you will see all open ANT 101 classes displayed as shown in Figure 6
below. The green circle next to Status indicates that this section is open for
enrollment, as shown framed in red, in Figure 6 below.
If the class displayed is closed, you will see a blue box in the Status column.
There may also be an icon with a circled “R” next to the course status. This
means that there are reserved seats in the class for certain groups of people
like transfer students or students studying abroad.
In most cases there will be multiple sections of the class
open on different days or on different times. When you find one you are interested
in adding to your schedule, you can click on the hyperlink of the section
number shown outlined in orange for more information. Click on the green select class shown framed in purple
in Figure 6 below to select the course for your schedule.
If you do not see a class you wish to add, you can click the
Start a New Search button outlined in
green in the bottom right corner to return to the Select classes to add page, or you can click on the blue Return to Add Classes text in the bottom
left corner to return to the “Add Classes
- Select classes to add” page shown in Figure 3.
After clicking on the section number shown in Figure 6 above
outlined in orange, a course detail page will open. This will include all the information about
the class (Figure 7).
If you are sure you want to add the class, click the green Select Class button outlined in red.
- Note that courses can be dropped if you choose
to do so. For more information see Drop a Class.
If you do not want to add the class to your schedule, click
on the blue View Search Results
button outlined in blue to return to the Search
Results page shown above in Figure 6 or you can return to the “Add Classes - Select classes to add” page
shown in Figure 3 by clicking on the text Return
to Add Classes outlined in green (Figure 7)
Preferences page will display once you have chosen a class to add. Here you
can enter a permission number, if needed for an override, in the Permission Number textbox as shown
framed in red in Figure 8 below. If you
need a permission number, please contact your advisor.
Once you have verified this is the course you wish to add,
by looking at the course detail on the bottom of the Enrollment Preferences
page, click the green Next button. Otherwise click the blue Cancel button.
You will now see the Add
Classes - Select classes to add page with a green dialog box informing you
that the course you selected has been added to your enrollment shopping cart
(shown in figure 9 outlined in green). You can either add more classes or
proceed with enrollment.
When you are satisfied with your class selections, click on
the green Proceed to Step 2 or 3
button below your shopping cart, as shown framed in red, in Figure 9 below.
You are now on Step 2 of the Add Classes - Confirm classes page. In order to continue on, you
must first check the box that states you have read the terms and conditions
(outlined in red in Figure 10 below).
Once you have checked this box you can confirm your
selection by clicking on the green Finish
Enrolling button after verifying that the class or classes listed at the
bottom of the page are the ones you wish to add to your schedule (outlined in
orange). To exit without adding the class, click the Cancel button outlined in blue or you can go back and save your
current class selections by clicking Previous
(outlined in green) to return to the add classes page and add more courses.
Step 3 on the Add
Classes - View Results page allows you to view the status report for
enrollment confirmations and errors, as shown in Figure 11 below.
If there is a green check mark under the status column next
to the class you added, the add was successful. If you see a red X in the
status column, there was an error and the class was not added. If you receive
this error when adding a class in LOUIE, first check to see if the course is
still open and that you meet all the prerequisite and other requirements for
the course. If you still have questions please consult your advisor.
