Students have the opportunity to review and retest on the ALEKS Math Placement Exam.  Students wishing to accelerate their semester plans should speak with an academic advisor.  

This sample plan is designed with roughly 30 credits per year.  Students can meet the Second Language requirement by demonstrating fourth semester proficiency through examination or taking any of a variety of second semester language courses. Additionally, one course in the student's degree program must focus on Gender, Race, Ethnicity, Non-Western Area Studies. Some General Education classes are designed to fulfill this requirement. Each student needs to meet a minimum of 120 total credits.  Please consult with your Advisement Report and your academic advisor.

* Eller Pre-Economics Foundation Courses: Required to apply for Advanced Standing into the professional program. Advanced Standing is required in order to take all 300 and 400-level Economics courses.

This is only a sample plan and requirements are subject to change and may vary based on catalog year, placement tests, AP/CLEP credit, transfer work, summer school, etc. The official degree requirements are found in the University General Catalog and all University of Arizona students should refer to their Academic Advisement Report through UAccess for their specific requirements for graduation.

All students enter as Pre-Economics students, and must go through a selective Advanced Standing process to gain entry to the upper-division Economics courses.  The following plan is designed on the assumption that a student places into College Algebra with SAT/ACT scores or through the ALEKS Math Placement Exam; students who test lower than College Algebra should refer to the Pre-Economics Five-Semester Plan and work with their academic advisor to learn how they can adjust their schedule to meet their educational goals.

Students can meet the Second Language requirement by demonstrating fourth semester proficiency through examination or taking any of a variety of second semester language courses. Additionally, one course in the student's degree program must focus on Gender, Race, Ethnicity, Non-Western Area Studies. Some General Education classes are designed to fulfill this requirement. Each student needs to meet a minimum of 120 total credits. Please consult with your Advisement Report and your Academic Advisor.

* Eller Pre-Economics Foundation Courses: Required to apply for Advanced Standing into the upper-division phase of the BA Economics program. Advanced Standing is required in order to take all 300 & 400-level Economics Courses.

Repeat Policy: Students are allowed to take major courses twice.  If a student fails an ECON major requirement (ex: ECON 200, ECON 332, ECON 361, etc) twice, the student will be required to change their major. Upon review at the end of a term, students who have not passed the course for a second time will be moved to No Major Selected.
