Registration Clearance & Advising

Each semester, in order to handle the high volume of students seeking registration clearance in the ECON B.A. and FIEC B.S. majors, the Academic Advisor for the Department of Economics will email an advising assignment to declared Economics and Financial Economics majors to their UMBC email address.  The name and email contact info for your assigned advisor will be included along with instructions on completing your PRE-ADVISING FORM.

 

As a matter of UMBC policy and procedure, students are responsible for the management of their academic careers. They are expected to familiarize themselves with resources such as the Undergraduate Catalog and the degree audit, and to remain informed of all published policies, degree requirements and academic calendar dates. — Academic Standards, UMBC Registrar
