  • If you have not completed any of the above listed courses, your request for Department approval will be forwarded to the instructor for review, please contact us via the VAC.
  • Econ 198 topics cannot be repeated for credit. As Econ 198 (SP15) is the same topic as was offered in SP14, you cannot enroll and repeat this class.
  • Students can petition to combine Econ 198 with Econ 173AL – Applied Finance Laboratory (another 2 unit course) to count as a standard UD major elective.
