Force adds for ECE 1xxx-6xxx level courses should be submitted online via our force add survey. Force-add requests will be accepted until 5:00 pm on the third day of class. No force adds will be accepted after the established deadline. CPE and EE undergraduate and graduate students are given priority for force adding ECE technical electives and graduate-level courses. GE students and other non-majors are not permitted to enroll in ECE required 2-3xxx level courses per the College of Engineering Enrollment Management Policy. Note that ECE faculty do not approve force add requests. When a decision has been made on your force add request, you will be sent a follow-up email message. Please do not continue to email, call, or come by ECE Student Services to check on the status of your force add. This only delays the process.
