  • The university processes all course requests received according to availability of seats in course requests.
  • Schedule adjustments are allowed during the "DROPADD" timeframe.
  • Departments may allow entry in course sections that are at capacity ("FULL").
  • See the department offering the course to determine the process to request a "Force-Add" (registration over capacity).
  • Departments may not Force-Add over published room capacities.
  • Access: Authorized access to HokieSpa is based on the student's PID (password assistance: 4-HELP, 231-4357)
  • Note: There is no priority given to processing a student's request if entered the first day of course request nor is there a penalty for entering a request the final day of course request.
  • However, waiting until the last day of the course request period ensures difficulty in accessing the system due to the higher volume of activity.
  • See importance of Course Request
