In their first term, all students – Honours Economics and Honours Mathematical Economics – will be enrolled in ECON 290. This will be done by the Economics Department in mid-July prior to newly admitted students being able to start adding courses on their own via the QUEST system in July. Students may NOT drop this course or attempt to switch to a different section. The department will also enroll all students to EMLS 129R, because it is highly recommended that students satisfy the Communication Requirement as soon as possible. It is therefore strongly advised NOT to drop this course. Beginning in July students can begin enrolling in additional courses for their first term of study – students may take a maximum of five half unit courses in a term; to be deemed full-time, a student must take at least three half unit courses in a term.
Students may “Course Select” – ie. Pre-enroll – in the courses they hope to take the Winter term during the course selection period beginning at the end of September. Students are strongly encouraged to participate in “Course Selection” for a future term as it enhances their chances of getting into the courses they hope to take. Students are able to begin finalizing their Winter course selections in November.
For a more detailed explanation of how to plan course selection, please see the ECON 2+2 Planner.
