Force Add

Information on the Force add procedures for Spring 2022.

 

For the Spring 2022 semester, the Math Department will offer a Force Add Survey for students who are unable to add a math course. 

The Math Department will not force add for convenience; this means we will not add students into closed sections if there is an open section that will fit their schedule. Therefore, if you received a section and dropped it, your survey request will very likely be denied. 

The  Math Force Add Survey will be open  November 26th 2021 - January 21st, 2022.

COURSE REQUESTS are available October 19, 2021 - November 2, 2021.

The Force Add Survey is for students who tried to add an undergraduate level math course during course request and received an error due to

  • an honors restriction,
  • a major or level restriction, or
  • a prerequisite error.

There are only a few exceptions for students who did not course request and must be force added to an undergraduate math course. Typical reasons are

  • Must repeat a course failed last semester and therefore did not course request the course
  • Not enrolled at Virginia Tech last semester and therefore did not course request the course
  • Changed majors and have new requirements for the degree and therefore did not course request the course.

Students who meet the above requirements should complete the Math Spring 2022 Force Add Survey. Please do not contact the math department in addition to completing the survey. If we encounter a question or problem, we will send an email directly to you with instructions. We will only email the student if there is an issue with the request.
 IT IS THE STUDENT’S RESPONSILTY TO CHECK THEIR SCHEDULE FOR THE COURSE SECTION THEY HAVE BEEN PLACED IN.

Students who tried to add an undergraduate math course and received a closed section error, or do not meet the above requirements should continue to try to add themselves to a section of the course. We will open seats as sections fill up, periodically, starting January 13, 2022, until the start of the semester.
