Becoming an Economics Major
If you go straight from being an Undeclared major to Economics at the end of your freshman year, Academic Advising will assign an advisor to you, and you don’t need to do any paperwork through the department.
If you switch from another major, or add Economics as a second major, you will need to meet with Prof. Hamilton (Director of Undergraduate Studies for Economics), who will assign you an advisor.
But even if you do not NEED to visit Prof. Hamilton at the beginning of your career as an Economics major, it is a good idea to stop in for a first visit. No need for an appointment; just show up during my office hours or catch me when I’m having coffee in the Gilman Atrium.
Once ISIS knows that you are an economics major, your advising will be done with your assigned academic advisor. You will need to meet with him/her each semester to get cleared for online registration.
NOTE: If you are a double major, ISIS will not allow you to register online until you have been cleared by BOTH departmental advisors.
