CS Undergraduate Course Survey

New CS Force-Add Policy

There will be no force adds offered by attending the first week of class--that process is hereby discontinued.

The Spring 2018 force/add survey is now closed.

All complete survey submissions will receive a response no later than Wednesday, January 17.  Incomplete requests will be deleted with no notification to the student.

On the Friday before classes begin, CS will make any remaining seats available through drop/add.  At this point, if the timetable is showing a course as full, then it is full to capacity and we cannot and will not add additional students.  Please be aware that class capacity does not always equal room capacity.  There are many factors that decide capacity; even if there are empty seats, we cannot add additional students. 

Questions? Send an e-mail to the CS Undergrad Services Office.


CS force-add requests will only be accepted from students who:

  • were unable to request CS courses (or Math 2534) during the Course Request period due to a prerequisite or a class restriction;  
  • requested a required CS course during course request, but did not get it and all sections are now full.

If you did not submit a Course Request, you are not eligible to submit the CS force-add survey.  You will not be forced-added to a course if you received it at registration and dropped it later.

Update 11/9/17: CS 3704 (Intermediate Software Design), CS 3714 (iOS and Android), 3724 (HCI), and 3754 (Cloud Software Dev) were restricted to CS majors only when the Spring 2018 scheduler ran.  Any additional majors or minors added to the list of restrictions will be added after drop/add opens November 25.

The force-add survey for undergraduate courses will open no later than the first day of course request (Tuesday, October 17) and will close at 5:00 p.m. on the Friday before the first day of classes (Friday, January 12).  No force-add requests will be accepted after this date!  All decisions will be made by the second day of classes and students notified accordingly.
