The Economics Undergraduate Advising Office provides a broad variety of services to assist undergraduate students in academic development. While our primary role is to advise Economics majors on strategies for degree completion, we also assist students on a number of related issues including: university policies, career choices, social and personal adjustment to university life, and opportunities such as study abroad and internships.

Advising for Economics majors is not mandatory. However, students are encouraged to meet with an advisor on a periodic basis to at least confirm progress in meeting degree requirements.

 

Advising Hours, Location, and Contact Information

Advising is usually available on a walk-in basis Monday - Friday from 10:00am - 4:30pm. Occasionally, advisors must attend meetings outside their offices or host orientation sessions, so if you are making a special trip to campus to meet with an ECON advisor, we suggest that you call or email in advance to confirm our walk-in hours for that particular day.

NOTE: All students who wish to change their major to ECON or declare ECON as a double major, must call or email the advising office to sign up for an ECON Info Session. Detailed information about declaring the major can be found here
