Undergraduate Program

Advising

Declaring Your Major

When you are ready to declare your major you must print an unofficial copy of your transcript and bring it with you. Students can access their unofficial transcript through Blackboard. An advisor will not sign your form without your transcript.

Peer Advisors

Peer advisors are there for students looking to speak to a fellow student about major advice. See the College Center for Advising Services website for a complete list of peer advisors. Students can also email econpeeradvisor@gmail.com to get in touch with a peer advisor.

Faculty Advisors

Advisors welcome the opportunity to answer questions concerning educational and career planning, and how economics fits into both. Faculty advisors are available for consultation during weekday office hours and by appointment. For questions concerning specific college rules and regulations, students should see the main department office or the College Center for Advising Services.
