Academic advising is important and you should meet with an advisor at least once per academic session to confirm you are enrolling in the required courses for your program and review other program requirements.  This can help to ensure you graduate on time in the program of your choice.  You may want to review the Department of Economics Undergraduate Advising Guide (PDF) for a better understanding of the importance of academic advising and students' role in advising.

An academic advisor will also be able to assist you with academic penalties, transfer credit questions, petitions, program changes, as well as degree and general education requirements.
