Other Regulations

  1. Courses counted toward the major may also count toward AXLE. All ECON courses count in the Social and Behavioral Science category of AXLE except ECON 3650, which counts in the International Cultures (INT) category, and the economic history courses, ECON 2150 and 3150, which count in the History and Culture of the United States (US) category..
  2. The Senior-in-Absentia Program described in the Undergraduate Catalog may be used by students wishing to count up to 15 hours of professional or graduate school courses toward their degree.
  3. Students in good standing are allowed to take any course in the Department for which they are qualified on a credit-by-examination basis. Authorization of the instructor and the Department Vice Chair is required. Requirements of the plan are detailed in the section of the Undergraduate Catalog on “Credit by Examination.” The examination will normally be four hours long.
  4. Except as noted in Course Requirements, only courses listed in the Undergraduate Catalog under economics can count in the required hours for the economics major.
    **The combination of Math 2820 or 2810, 2820L, and ECON 3032, 3035, or 305 may be counted in the economics major as a substitute for Econ 1500 and count as 3 credit hours in the major. In this case, ECON 3032, 3035, or 3050 will also count as an elective.
  5. Econ 1111 is not an alternative to Econ 1010 or 1020 but will count as an elective in economics below the 3000 level. No more than 60 hours of the 120 required for graduation may be taken in a single discipline in the College; no more than 80 hours may be taken in any two disciplines. All courses taken for credit in a major or minor in the Department count in the 60-hour limit. The grades in these courses will be included in the calculation of the grade point average in the major or minor, as appropriate. No courses included in a major or the related minors may be taken on a pass/fail basis.
