Undergraduate Advising

All undergraduate students are assigned a major advisor in the Economics Department. Students are required to meet with an Econ advisor to declare one of the three undergraduate majors (BA, BA-Q, or BS). Econ advisors work with students to discuss course selection, registration, major requirements, transfer credits, and important resources on campus to increase student success and retention.

The Econ advisors will guide students through the major declaration process. In order to declare an Economics major, students must successfully complete the preparatory courses:

  • ECON 1101 - Principles of Microeconomics
  • ECON 1102 - Principles of Macroeconomics
  • Math 1271 - Calculus I

Students interested in declaring a BS or BA-Q also need to complete Math 1272 - Calculus II before declaring the major.

Students cannot take upper-level (3000-4000) Economics courses until they officially declare an Economics major.

Students may schedule an appointment with one of the two Econ advisors here: and send questions to the advisors any time at The advisors will make every effort to answer your questions in a timely manner. When sending an email be sure to include:

  • Your first and last name
  • Your student ID number
  • A brief explanation about your question or concern
