Advisers see students by appointment and drop-in. Please read below to find out which meeting format is appropriate!
Students in the economics major or exploring the economics major as their primary major can schedule half hour appointments by visiting the appointment scheduling website. Students already in the economics major should schedule an appointment with their assigned adviser (listed in LionPATH under “adviser information”).
***Economics minors & concurrent majors or those exploring the economics minor or concurrent major may not schedule appointments and must come to drop-in advising.
Students who are more than 15 minutes late will forfeit their appointment.
Appointments are meant for issues that you know will take longer than 10 or 15 minutes. Examples of topics that could be covered in an appointment include:
- Change of major or concurrent major discussions
- Long-range planning
- Transferring credits from other institutions
- Study abroad planning
- Major/career/postgraduate exploration
If you are unable to make your scheduled appointment, you may cancel your appointment through the scheduling system. Please also contact the adviser via e-mail if you cancel less than 24 hours in advance.
How to Schedule an Appointment in the new Starfish System
First read the appointment scheduling instructions.
You could also view the video tutorial for instructions (a larger version can be accessed by visiting https://video.smeal.psu.edu/media/starfish-demo):
If you have brief questions or concerns that can be addressed within 10-15 minutes or you are a economics minor, you may stop by during drop-in advising hours. Examples of drop-in items include:
- Questions about the economics minor
- Questions about economics as a concurrent major
- Review courses on your current or upcoming schedule
- Graduation checks
- Discuss entrance to major requirements
- Requests for course substitutions
- Discussion about late drop
If it becomes evident that you have more extensive questions or issues than you realized, you may be asked to schedule an appointment.
