Force Requests & Prerequisites

Force Requests

Next force request dates: November 18 (9:00 a.m.)–December 4 (12:00 p.m.)

A force request form will become available on this page during the above dates and times.

Force requests must be submitted from your TAMU email address. Force requests submitted from other email accounts will be discarded. We begin working on force requests after the force request form closes and will complete them before the first day of spring classes.

Please be aware that force requests DO NOT guarantee you a spot in the course. We process force requests based on graduation needs first, then by date/time stamp. If you need to update or make a change to your force request, please email: biobiougradadv@tamu.edu


Prerequisites for BICH and GENE courses are listed in Howdy. Please contact the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences Advising Center 5 for more information on transfer credits.

Instructor approval for a prerequisite override will be granted only in the rarest of circumstances. Please note that CHEM 222 or CHEM 227 are not approved prerequisites for BICH 409 or 410.
