Where to go for information

Student Counselling

At the Department of Economics, we have academic support staff who are available to meet and provide guidance on a wide range of topics like course enrollment and requisites, program selection and enrollment, transfer credits, awards and scholarships, deferred exams and many more. If you have a question, be sure to read through our Frequently Asked Questions website, we’ve provided answers to common questions ECO students frequently ask advisors!

Academic advising sessions are also available in-person, online either through email, telephone or MS Teams. If you are unsure who to contact, please reach out to Ms. Alyssa Hughes - 416-978-4603 or email - who will route your request to the appropriate member of our staff if your question cannot be handled directly. When contacting the department with inquiries, it is strongly encouraged that you email us from your utoronto email and provide your student number. We respond much more efficiently when students give us the necessary information.

Additional support is also available across College Registrars’ Offices and the Faculty of Arts & Science, here’s a detailed list of where to go for more information. When in doubt, the best place to go is to your College Registrar’s Office!
