The Spring 2018 schedule is now live! Please read this before making your scheduling decisions!
Pre-registration begins November 13th for Seniors. You were assigned a time by the Registrar based on your completed hours (find this under “registration time assignment” on My Record). If you miss this time, you must wait until open registration!
- REGISTRATION TIMES: You can find your assigned registration time on the My Record tab on Howdy under “Registration Time Assignment”.
- RESIDENCY REQUIREMENT: Each student must complete 36 hours of upper-level coursework to be eligible for graduation (listed toward the bottom of your degree evaluation).
- DEGREE EVALUATION: Use your Degree Evaluation (found in the My Record tab in Howdy) to plan your schedule and determine your remaining degree requirements.
- PREREQUISITES: We are more closely enforcing prerequisites in ECON and ECMT classes. If you get a Prerequisite and Test Score Error when you attempt to register for an ECON or ECMT course, please check to make sure that you have taken the required courses before contacting an advisor. If you believe there is an error, send an email to Rochelle or Savannah including the course and section number, and your UIN.
- LITERATURE Courses: Once you have reached 60 hours, you cannot register for 200-level English Literature or ENGL 104 courses at A&M except for ENGL 203. You must either take the course elsewhere or choose a 300-level LITERATURE course. Be sure the word literature is in the title of the course.
- If you are in the Fall 2014 catalog or later, you MUST take ECMT 461 or STAT 211. If you take STAT 211, please let us know ASAP.
- FORCES in ECON courses are reserved only when space permits—priority will be given to graduating seniors. We cannot force you into courses in other departments. The force request link will be sent out in Mid-November
- WRITING INTENSIVE COURSES:
*Please note that there will be only 2 writing-intensive ECON classes (ECON 410 and ECON 318) offered during the Spring 2018. Only the 900 sections for these courses are Writing Intensive. All majors need 2 writing intensive (UWRT) courses in major before graduation. If you take ECMT 461 and 463 in the Fall or Spring semesters (not summer) they will satisfy this requirement. ECON 410-900 and ECON 318-900 will NOT have seats opened and will stay set to zero through registration. It is by-request to advisor through the forces link only.
- INFORMATION ABOUT ISTM 209: For students pursuing the BUSI minor, the business school NO LONGER ACCEPTS TRANSFER COURSES for this requirement. See the BUSI minor webpage if you have questions.
- ACCT 210: Those of you who have credit for ACCT 229 and plan to take ACCT 210 this Spring will need to e-mail Casey Kyllonen at email@example.com and ask for a prerequisite waiver for ACCT 210.
- ENGL 104 is for freshman and sophomore students only. This restriction has been in place since Catalog 123 (2000-2001). No exceptions are made. If a student chooses to take the course elsewhere, that’s ok, but there may be a prerequisite (such as ENGL 103 or AP credit). The equivalent to ENGL 104 is ENGL 1302 under the Texas Common Course Numbering System. ENGL 103 will count only as a General Elective in the Economics Degree Plan.
If you want internship credit, it CANNOT be given retroactively. You must complete the internship in the semester you register for credit, as there has been a change in student rules. For credit, it must be ECON related, a minimum of 150 hours at the job site, and pre-approved by Savannah Maxwell PRIOR to the start date. The internship application information can be found at econ.tamu.edu under the “Undergraduate” tab. After completing your internship, you must submit a 1 page reflective essay of what you learned and how it is linked to ECON to receive credit. You can receive a maximum of 6 hours of credit (3 hours of 484, 3 hours of 485). You may not sign up for ECON 484 unless pre-approved.
If you are taking courses somewhere other than TAMU in your final semester here, be sure to follow proof of enrollment guidelines to prevent your graduation from being cancelled. Details found here: http://registrar.tamu.edu/Graduation-Degree-Programs/Graduation-Diplomas/Proof-of-Enrollment
Ø Q-Drop deadline at 5 pm. Please complete all drops before then.
Ø Last day to change KINE 198/199 Grade Type for Fall 2017 at 5 pm.
Ø Last day to officially withdraw from the University at 5 pm. This can be completed through your Howdy portal. We cannot do it in the ECON office.
If e-mailing us, only use your TAMU account, include your UIN, and a subject line. If you do not provide this info, it will greatly delay our response time.
If you have questions about study abroad, internships, or research and do not plan on completing these things in the Spring semester, please wait until the week of December 4th to come discuss options.
