Force Request

  • Force requests for CSCE classes can be entered at CSNet at https://csnet.cs.tamu.edu/apps/forces/. Do not use this for force requests for non-CSCE classes--contact the department teaching the class for those requests. If you have never had a CSE Department login, you can log in using your TAMU NETid and password. If you have previously had a CSE Department login that now is inactive contact the CS Department Helpdesk for assistance (this will be the case if you previously took CSCE classes). You must be inside the TAMU firewall to connect to this site, so you will need to use VPN from off-campus.  For information on TAMU's VPN, see http://hdc.tamu.edu/Connecting/VPN/.  Force request evaluation will start when we reach open evaluation but the majority will not be able to be handled until the semester's grades are submitted.  Force requests can take until add/drop week to resolve in some cases.
    • Force requests for other departments' courses are handled by the teaching department.  We have information on some of their procedures:
      • ECEN: Course waitlist instructions have not yet been announced.  For ECEN prerequisite requests, send email to ecenprereq@tamu.edu.  Email must include student name, UIN, major, ECEN course request, semester requested, prerequisite course taken and grade earned, and institution where prerequisite course was completed.  If the course is in progress or not on your transcript, provide proof--for example a screenshot of your registration page at the other institution.
      • MATH: Force requests and prerequisite override requests for MATH courses can be made at http://www.math.tamu.edu/courses/.
      • ENGR 482 and ANTH 370 (ANTH 205-9xx in the summer):  Force request procedures for Summer 2017 and Fall 2017 will be announced on April 24th by the dean's office.  We expect that they will be limited to graduating seniors.  Note: students seeking to register for ENGR 482 also should check for seats in PHIL 482, since the two courses are cross-listed and provide the same credit.
      • ENGLISH indicates that they will not be accepting force requests for ENGL 104 or ENGL 210 beginning with Fall 2015.  They also indicate that they will not waive the U1/U2 restriction for ENGL 104.
      • Cybersecurity minor courses (especially TCMG 308): see the Cybersecurity Center's Web page, https://cybersecurity.tamu.edu/ and then follow links for undergraduate education. There is a form at the bottom of this page that allows you to request prerequisite overrides.
      • College of GEOSCIENCES forces are entered at http://gofr.tamu.edu/ (GEOG, GEOL, GEOP, ATMO, GEOS or OCNG).
      • RENR 205/215 force requests: http://essm.tamu.edu/academics/undergraduate/advising/force-requests/
      • Physics indicates that they will not be able to force students into PHYS 218 and PHYS 208 as each section will be set to the physical room limit.  They also request that if you need prerequisite overrides that you route them through our office.
      • College of Architecture force requests are entered at http://www.arch.tamu.edu/academics/force-request/ (this includes the Visualization department).
      • ISYS 209 is now called ISTM 209.  Forces for ISTM 209 (only) are entered at http://www-info.tamu.edu/infowait/.  Only seniors (with priority given to graduating seniors) will be forced into ISYS 209.  All requests must be processed through this system so don't try calling or emailng them. Note that there also is a departmental examination for ISTM 209 credit.  Information about that is at http://dars.tamu.edu/dars/files/7e/7e0e02e4-c961-479e-bbc1-8de280c4e36e.pdf.
      • FINC 409 for Summer 2017 and Fall 2017:  Waitlist at https://mays.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_5vZHWjJomVCOGjj  This is only open to Summer and Fall graduating students ONLY.
      • Students wanting to get forced into KINE 120, KINE 223, KINE 198 or KINE 199 will  need to contact the Department that is charge of these courses, Physical Education Activity Program Office, at 979-845-5924
      • POLS 206 and 207 seats are being released daily during pre-registration.  A spring 2016 graduating senior who is unable to register for the class should email one of the POLS advisors on December 3 with their Name and UIN.  See http://pols.tamu.edu/undergraduate-studies/advising/#contact for information on contacting POLS advisors.
      • Chemistry reminds students that registration in 101/111, 102/112, and 107/117 requires accepting the Lab Safety Acknowledgement.  They also remind students that the lectures and laboratories for the courses are corequisites, which means that both have to be registered for at the same time (type both CRNs in before clicking submit).  Seats are added throughout preregistration, usually at the beginning of the registration times.
