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 links are: ECEN 214, ECEN 248, ECEN 314, ECEN 325, ECEN 350, ECEN 454. Course waitlists for Spring 2017 will close on Thursday Dec. 8 at 11:59pm. IMPORTANT NOTE: Please be advised that the department will only use these lists to determine if additional seats or sections are necessary for the upcoming semester. Students are responsible to continue to check HOWDY to see if a seat has become available during the open registration times. 
      • MATH: Force requests and prerequisite override requests for MATH courses can be made at http://www.math.tamu.edu/courses/.
      • Spring 2016 force requests for ENGR 482 are limited to graduating seniors only (Spring 2016 and Summer 2016) and must be submitted by December 21, 2015 at midnight.  They will begin processing the requests on Monday, December 3 on a first-come first-served basis.  For instructions refer to /easa/areas/academics/engineering-ethics-force
      • ENGLISH indicates that they will not be accepting force requests for ENGL 104 or ENGL 210 beginning with Fall 2015.
      • 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).
      • Forces for ISYS 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 ISYS 209 credit.  Information about that is at http://dars.tamu.edu/dars/files/7e/7e0e02e4-c961-479e-bbc1-8de280c4e36e.pdf.
      • 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.
