Additionally, here are some FAQ’s that may be helpful:
Is admission to the Economics major competitive? Is there a GPA cut-off? No, currently there is no GPA requirement and approval is not on a competitive basis. Our goal is to accept all students who want Economics as their major as long as they have demonstrated basic competencies in economics and math by successfully completing the prerequisite coursework with a grade of at least C minus in each course. All applicants are also subject to the College of Liberal Arts internal transfer policies.
Do I need to take the required classes in-residence? No, transfer credit and credit-by-exam credit are accepted. All required courses must be posted with final grades (or “CR” in the case of credit-by-exam) on your UT record by the end of the semester in which you apply in order for your application to be considered. The deadline this semester is May 31st.
If I am currently taking the required courses can I submit an application? Yes, we will accept your application but will wait until after grades are posted to process it. If you are taking prerequisite courses over the summer, you must apply the following Fall semester.
Do I need to meet a minimum number of credit hours completed in-residence to apply? No, subject to the rules in your current college/major you may apply during your first semester. The major declaration will become official the following semester.
Is there a maximum number of hours taken or semesters completed to be eligible to apply? No. However, if it is not possible for you to graduate with the Economics major by your 9th semester in college, approval to declare may be subject to appeal.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
Have a great week!
