Once you declare an Economics major or minor by completing the appropriate online form on SIS, you will be assigned an adviser in Economics. If you are an Economics major, you will need to meet with your adviser each semester to get cleared for online registration.

Note: If you are a double major, SIS will not allow you to register online until you have been cleared by both departmental advisers.

The Office of Academic Support offers optional small group tutoring sessions. The purpose of the tutoring sessions is to offer an opportunity to students in the course to ask basic questions about the material in the course. The session tutors are undergraduate students who have taken courses in a prior year and have done well.

For more information, including session times and meeting places, visit the Learning Den and PILOT tutoring subsections.

If you want tutoring help in a course that does not have Learning Den tutors, check with your DUS. We can frequently find capable Learning Den tutors, but only if we know there is a need.
