Undergraduate Advising


The Department of Economics offers advising for undergraduate students on a walk-in basis during posted office hours. We encourage students to seek advising once per semester in order to aid in a rewarding university experience and facilitate a smooth academic career.

Economics students are also encouraged to seek general advising for courses not within the Department of Economics from the Academic Advisors in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences in Zulauf 201, by calling 815-753-0114.

Before meeting with an advisor, be familiar with the general degree requirements presented in the course catalog and summarized in the degree requirement check lists.

Declaration of Major and Declaration of Minor forms can be filled out in the Main office (Zulauf Hall 515) during regular business hours -- Monday thru Friday 8 am - 4:30 pm, closed from 12-1.

Email to set up an appointment only if you cannot make it during regular walk-in hours.
