Fall Appointments

 

Students in the economics major or exploring the economics major can schedule half hour appointments by visiting Starfish.  Students already in the economics major should schedule an appointment with their assigned adviser (listed in LionPATH under “adviser information”).

***Economics minors or those exploring the economics minor may not schedule appointments and must come to drop-in advising.  

Students who are more than 15 minutes late will forfeit their appointment.

Appointments are meant for issues that you know will take longer than 10 minutes. Examples of topics that should be covered in an appointment include:

  • Change of major or concurrent major
  • Long-range planning
  • Transferring credits from other institutions
  • Study abroad planning
  • Major/career/postgraduate exploration

Appointment Cancellation

If you are unable to make your scheduled appointment, you may cancel your appointment through the scheduling system.  Please also contact the adviser via e-mail if you cancel less than 24 hours in advance.

  • Students who plan to declare Economics as a concurrent (second) major should make an appointment to meet with an adviser.
