COURSE REQUESTS for Fall 2023 are available 
March 21 - April 4, 2023.

FORCE-ADD for Fall 2023 will be open the following dates:  4/21/23 through 5/26/23 and 7/31/23 through 8/25/23.

If you have recently received MATH 1225 Eligibility by passing the ALEKS, MATH 1984, or MATH 1214,

  • You will need to wait until MATH 1225 Eligibility is updated in HokieSpa to add MATH 1225 to your schedule.  Please do NOT complete the force add survey as your request will be denied with NO further communication.

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 likely be denied. 

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

Students who meet the above requirements should complete the  

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.


With the exception of MATH 1225, 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 in August 2023, until the start of the semester.
