Advising Appointments (for current Economics majors):

For right now we are focusing on your immediate needs. We will resume long-term planning appointments at a later date.

Email Advising:  Email your preferred advisor (contact info below) or Include your UT EID.

  • If you just have a quick question, emailing is the most efficient and quickest way to get a response. We will try to respond the same day (possibly within minutes!).
  • If your questions are more involved but still prefer advising via email, send an email to your advisor, include your UT EID and your questions. We will try to respond within 24 hours with answers or with a scheduled response time.

Real-Time (Zoom) Advising:

  • Current Economics Majors: If you prefer to “meet” with an advisor in real-time, please schedule an appointment with your preferred advisor at the link next to their photo (below). If you don't have a preferred advisor, and you would rather meet with first available you can schedule an appointment here. When making an appointment, you can state your preference for the type of appointment (phone, chat, or video)…  these options will all most likely be via Zoom. Please note, some advisors have limited, or zero, real-time appointments available— if you want to schedule with an advisor but aren’t able to, email the advisor to find out if that’s possible.


Interested in becoming an Economics major? 

Current UT Students: In order to meet with an Economics advisor, you must attend an info session. After you have attended an info session, you may schedule an appointment to meet with an advisor.

Prospective freshmen and external transfers: Our office can meet with non-UT students during non-peak times (peak times are the first twelve class days and during registration). Call 512-471-2973 to schedule a prospective student appointment.
