Academic Planning Form

All Economics Majors must complete the Academic Planning Form as early as possible after declaring their major and definately prior to seeing their 
advisor. The new eforms can be edited so that you can keep them up to date as your 
semesters progress. On this form you will list all the courses that you've taken and plan to take to satisfy the requirements for graduation. Before starting your work on this form, carefully review a copy of your current degree audit. If you have questions about your requirements or options, don't hesitate to ask your advisor or the department chair. Once you've completed the Academic Planning Form and submitted it electronically, both your advisor and the chair of the department will receive an email notification and be able to review your form. Be sure to make an appointment with your advisor if your intention is to have it reviewed. You want your course of action to be smooth towards graduation!
