Survey for CS Undergraduate Courses:

The Fall CS Course Survey is now closed.  To get a seat in a CS course, you should keep an eye on the timetable to see if you can get a seat through drop/add.  If you cannot get a seat through drop/add, you can attempt to force/add the course. 

Computer Science Force-Add Policy

1.    How can I attempt to add a full CS undergraduate course?

  1. Keep checking drop/add to see if you can get a seat. 
  2. If you cannot get a seat through drop/add, you can try to force/add the course.     
  3. To request a force/add for a CS course, you should plan to attend the first class meeting.  

All prerequisites will be strictly enforced.

2.    What if I missed the first class meeting?

Attend the next class meeting.  Priority will be given to force-adds submitted at the first class meeting.

3.    What if I miss all of the class meetings during the first week?

Come to the 114 McBryde Advising Office and pick up a paper copy of the force/add form.   It will be the student's responsibility to obtain the faculty member's signature on the form.  All forms must be submitted by 3:00 p.m. Friday, September 1, as that is the last day to add a course for the Fall 2017 semester.

3.    Are there any courses restricted by major that I absolutely cannot force-add if I don’t meet the major restriction?

CS 1944
CS 2104
CS 3604
CS 4944

4.    When will I know if I have been added to a class?

Every effort will be made to process those force-adds submitted in the first class meeting by the second class meeting.

Force-adds submitted in the second class meeting will be processed by the third class meeting or 5:00 P.M., Friday, September 1, whichever comes first.

5.    How will I know my force-add request was successful?

You will be notified by e-mail as to whether your force-add was approved or denied.  The CS Department aims to have force/add requests processed by the next class meeting.

6.    What can I do if I don’t get in the course via force-add?

Plan to request the course for the next semester during Course Request.
