One-Time Exception Drop Deadline

Students may drop a single class or withdrawal from the university after the mid-semester deadline using the One-Time-Exception (OTE). 

OTEs must be initiated by December 5, 2022 at 5 pm or before a final grade is posted - whichever is earlier.

A student must request the OTE from a Dean’s Office advisor by the last class day. You may connect with an advisor in GEB 2.200 or via Zoom and our online live chat.

Every undergraduate is allowed one OTE, whether it is used to withdraw from all classes or drop one class. An OTE drop counts as one of your six Q-drops. Once you’ve used it, you cannot use it again.

Interested in becoming an Economics major? 

Who is my advisor?

There are five economics major advisors and over 1800 Economics majors. We don’t have assigned caseloads and we don’t require advising (unless you are below a 2.0 GPA). You are welcome to schedule with the same advisor you have met with before, or with whichever advisor best fits your schedule! Our records system allows us to review notes from your previous advising sessions, to assure continuity for you, regardless of which advisor you met with previously. Meet our advising team below!
