HA Override Information

Course capacities are set to ensure the quality of the course and room accommodation. We need to reserve capacity overrides for students who have no alternative to achieve an on-time graduation.

If the course you are requesting is at capacity, you may use the online override form HERE to request a capacity override.

Use the form only if both of the following conditions are met:

  1. Your graduation will be delayed if you cannot complete the requested course in the upcoming semester. For example, you may need HA 260 in fall because you plan to graduate in spring and will need to take HA 415 in the spring.
  2. There are no other open sections of the course you are requesting or the only other open section conflicts with another course that you must have to graduate, and it is impossible to take the other course in another semester.

You should not request a capacity override if you do not meet both of the above conditions. Overrides that do not meet both conditions will not be granted and slow the processing for students who have valid requests. If you do not meet the conditions listed above, please check LOUIE periodically. Open seats do become available as other students drop classes.

After Submission

Check your NAU e-mail and your LOUIE schedule daily after you submit the request. If we have all the information we need, we will add you to the requested class and notify you as soon as possible. If we need additional information we will contact you by e-mail.

If we cannot accommodate your request, please see an SHRM advisor for assistance in finding alternative courses to complete your schedule.

Overrides into Online Courses

The School of Hotel and Restaurant Management in the W. A. Franke College of Business, provides the major in Hotel and Restaurant management degree to statewide students. The online courses offered for this program is the only option for statewide students to take some required courses. In some cases these required courses are offered online only once each year, so a statewide student who does not get into the course would have to wait a full year for another opportunity. We are constrained by resource and quality issues as to the number of online courses we offer and the capacity of the online courses.

Accordingly, we must reserve all of the seats in most online courses to statewide students. Exceptions to this policy will be made on an extremely limited basis through the override process. A conflict with work hours, in and of itself, will not be considered adequate justification to add a Flagstaff campus student to an online section. All summer online courses will be open to Flagstaff campus students during the summer session. Please check with a HRM advisor for a list of these courses.
