Students can submit force registration requests for the following reasons:
1. Prerequisite or Corequisite Missing. This is only accepted if the following conditions apply:
a. Transfer work is in progress or has not been received by UB. Students must supply proof of enrollment and completion of the prerequisite or corequisite courses.
b. Student received an exception to use a specific course in lieu of a prerequisite or corequisite, or needs to request permission from the course instructor to waive a prerequisite or corequisite.
2. Course is Closed. Be sure to add a different open section, or enroll to the waitlist, if available.
3. Repeat. Students are permitted to self-enroll in a class twice. Any attempts to register for the class beyond the two permitted must be approved by the department. Policies can be viewed here: https://catalog.buffalo.edu/policies/repeat.html
4. Permission Required. This pertains to classes that require specific permissions, i.e. internships, undergraduate research, etc.
NOTE: Many 100- and 200-level CHE courses are designated as “controlled enrollment courses” (CEC). Students who wish to repeat a CEC course may have difficulty registering during the Fall or Spring semesters, and should plan on repeating the course during the Summer if possible. See policies for CEC here: https://catalog.buffalo.edu/policies/repeat.html
Requests are reviewed on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please allow for additional processing time during high volume periods like open registration.
