New ECON Major Advising
New Economics majors need to make an appointment with an academic advisor for an initial meeting: Make an Appointment Here.
The required new ECON major advising appointments have been suspended for the Fall 2020 term. If you are a new major, you do not need to meet with us at this time. No enrollment holds have been placed by the ECON Dept this semester.
Otherwise, ECON majors are not required to meet with an advisor every semester and will not have an enrollment hold placed prior to course registration. However, you are welcome and encouraged to meet with an advisor at any time for any further questions.
