peer advising in Economics

The Economics Advising Office helps students navigate our academic programs, plan their studies, and connect with resources at UConn.  Our advising team consists of both professional staff academic advisors and student peer advisors. Students can utilize these advising options in-person by drop-in or appointment, virtually by appointment, or via email. 

More About Advising

Students are assigned an academic advisor in Student Admin when they declare Economics as a major. Students enrolled in the Honors Program are also assigned to Professor Olivier Morand.

Drop-In Advising

For drop-in advising, students can meet with our peer advisors - no appointment needed! Just arrive in Herbst Hall 309 during drop in hours.

Drop in hours will resume in the Fall of 2024.
