Force Add

students walking out of Pamplin

Force adds for Fall Semester 2021 will open on August 2nd, 2021. The system will close on August 13th at midnight.

Force Adds will be processed before the last day to add classes.

To force add a REAL course to your schedule, please use the force add link below. Please read the instructions carefully.  A force add request does not guarantee placement in the course. Please do not submit multiple requests for the same class.  Incomplete forms will not be processed.  Do not forget your student ID # or the CRN of the desired course.


If there is an OPEN section for the course you wish to add, you will not be able to force add a full section. You must add one of the open sections.  If you do not see a CRN listed then it is not available for you to force add.

Please note that if a course has a prerequisite listed you must have successfully completed the prerequisite or equivalent before trying to force add a course. Also please note that if a course has a co-requisite listed you must have successfully completed the co-requisite or be enrolled in the co-requisite.

If you have any questions, please email
