Enrollment Information

Economics Course Enrollment Procedures

Due to high demand, enrollment in some face to face Economics courses during fall and spring semesters is temporarily restricted to primary majors in Economics to ensure that these students are able to satisfy critical major requirements.

In general, our 205 level and above Econ courses are restricted to Primary Econ Majors until only until our own primary major Juniors can enroll, and our Econ 203 and 204 courses are restricted to Primary Econ Majors only until after our own Sophomores enroll. This only entails a short wait after enrollment starts (usually of a week to two weeks) for Econ Second Majors, Econ Minors and other students.

Economics IE courses are closed to non-primary majors until the first day of classes each semester, then available to other students only if seats are still available once classes start.

Economics 365 Writing in Economics (Junior Year Writing) is always restricted to Econ Primary majors only.

University Plus Economics Online Courses

Find information on Economics online courses offered via UMass University Plus here. The Fall/Spring enrollment ramping restrictions described above do not apply to Economics University Plus courses.

Non-Economics Courses

Each academic department manages enrollment for courses only within their department.

For example, the Department of Mathematics and Statistics manages enrollment for MATH 127, the Spanish department manages enrollment in Spanish courses, and the Isenberg School of Management manages enrollment for courses offered by Isenberg.  Enrollment is managed differently within each department. Students with questions regarding enrollment in a course outside of the Department of Economics should contact the academic department of the course in which they wish to enroll.
