An upgraded version of the Lumberjack Online University Information Environment, more commonly called “LOUIE Online,” will be launched Oct. 23 with the latest features from Oracle/PeopleSoft.

As part of the upgrade process, LOUIE Online will be unavailable from Oct. 18-22. Information about the scheduled downtime will be published in the Oct. 11 issue of Inside NAU.

To help the campus community with the transition, the project team is offering a course demonstrating the system’s new functionality.

The class, “LOUIE Upgrade—What’s Coming in October?,” is available to all faculty, staff and students. View a schedule and register online.

Project team members are available to present an overview to any department or organization. E-mailSue.Stefanko@nau.edu to schedule a presentation.

Students, faculty and staff use the LOUIE system for tasks ranging from enrolling in classes and recording grades to employee timekeeping and receiving compensation.
