All Economics Peer Advising Services are virtual until further notice.
Economics peer advisors are a valuable resource for prospective and current economics students.Our peer advisors are trained by the undergraduate advising staff on department policies and procedures. They are very knowledgeable about the economics department because they have completed the process of declaring the major, and have taken economics courses on-campus. We encourage students to consult with them about their experiences in the Economics major.
If your questions require the review of your academic records, please refer to an Academic Advisor. Visit our advising website to view your options for getting in touch with an Academic Advisor.
