About Faculty Academic Advising

 Once you have decided on an Economics major, you will be assigned an Economics Faculty Academic Advisor (or you may request a particular Economics professor).  AT MINIMUM, you should schedule a meeting directly with your Faculty Academic Advisor during the semester Advance Registration Periods.  You should also plan to meet with your advisor if you have any questions about classes that you are taking or would like to take, if you are running into any difficulties with your classes, or to talk about potential careers or graduate school.  Faculty Academic Advising is an integral part of your education, not just an obligatory step in the course registration process.  Successful Faculty Academic Advising sessions can help guide you seamlessly through your academic pursuits and beyond.
