Current UT Student Internal Transfer


 Fall 2020 Internal Transfer Information


Beginning in the Fall 2020 semester, applications will be processed on a rolling basis.

Online application opens August 24, 2020.

Eligibility Requirement: Must have attended an info session prior to application.

Info session dates will be posted on this website closer to the fall semester. We don't yet know what format they will take, but we will be sure to offer them in a format that will be accessible to all. Please don't email requesting more information on info sessions. Check back on this website closer to the start of the semester.


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 attended an info session.

Do I need to meet a minimum number of credit hours completed in-residence to apply? No, you may apply during your first semester. 

Is there a maximum number of hours taken or semesters completed to be eligible to apply? No. 

I need to declare the major now in order to graduate on time! We definitely want to support your efforts to graduate on time! Non-majors may register for restricted upper division Economics courses on the last day of registration provided stated prerequisites are met and if seats are available. However, you will need to follow the stated internal transfer process and deadlines to officially declare the major.

I still have questions. Can I talk to an advisor? If you still have questions about the major or the application process, please attend one of our information sessions. Information sessions are REQUIRED for declaring the major AND you must attend one if you would like to schedule an appointment with an advisor before declaring. For any other questions please contact:
