Instruction

Faculty should create class syllabi, following the template provided by OU Center for Faculty Excellence. Faculty must upload their syllabi to their course in Canvas by the first day of the semester. Faculty must also submit their syllabi each semester to the Native American Studies office manager at nas@ou.edu by the first Friday of the first week of classes. Syllabi will be reviewed by the department chair. Any suggestions for updates will be sent to instructors, if needed. More information about OU syllabi procedures may be found in the OU Faculty Handbook.

First Week of Classes
Native American Studies utilizes waitlists for all full classes.  Students are given the option to add themselves to the waitlist when attempting to enroll in a full class in One.  Students progress through the waitlist on a first-come, first-served basis - when an enrolled student drops a full course, an email will be sent to the next student on the waitlist informing them that a space has become available and that they have 24 hours to enroll in the course. If the student does not enroll within the 24-hour timeframe, they will be dropped from the waitlist and an email will to the next student on the list. Students dropped from the waitlist may add themselves back on, and will be added to the end of the list.

Second Week of Classes
Waitlists are closed, all students are removed from waitlists.  Students may be added to a full class at the instructor’s discretion.  (Enrollment cannot exceed classroom capacity.

Instructors should email requests for "Class Full" overrides to:
Tyson Putthoff at tyson@ou.edu (undergraduate-level classes)
Katie Bayliss at kbayliss@ou.edu (graduate-level classes)

Week Three and Beyond
To add a class after the second week of classes, students must submit to the College of Arts & Sciences Academic Advising office:

Travel

Below is basic information for working in the Concur system to request, book and expense travel. Please visit the Concur Travel page for full information/instructions.

Employees must use an OU Travel Card in order to be reimbursed for travel expenses. It is the employee's responsiblity to ensure that their cards are active and ready for use ahead of travel. Any expenses charged to the OU Travel Card, that are not reimbursed by the department, will be deducted from the employee’s following paycheck. 

Travel Card Training and Application

All reimbursable University travel is booked using the Concur system. You may find OU Travel policy and procedures on the Concur webpage

1. Travel Request - All reimbursable out-of-state and international business travel begins with a Travel Request in Concur. (In-state travel does not require a Travel Request). 

2. Book Travel - Booking is done within Concur, through Corporate Travel Planners.  You may opt to book directly through CTP by emailing ou@ctptravelservices.com or calling 877-811-5319. Trips booked with a CTP travel agent will be loaded to the Concur system.

3. Enjoy Your Trip! 

4. Expense Report - An “Expense” link will appear to the right of your Travel Request. Use this link to generate an Expense Report. It can take a few days for Travel Card expenses to appear in Concur, you will need to wait to submit your Expense Report until all expenses have been added to the report.  

Employees will be responsible for any expenses beyond their budget and should plan accordingly when booking. Expenses charged to the OU Travel Card, and not covered by funding from NAS or other committed funding, will be deducted from the employee’s next paycheck. If an employee expects that their NAS budget will not cover their trip in full, and they do not want overages to be deducted from their paycheck, they may want to consider using a personal credit card for expenses that they will not be requesting reimbursement for.
