Summer is approaching and some of you may be returning to the Orange County area. With that in mind, Vice Chair Famulari has reviewed the courses offered at UCI which can be taken for UCSD Economics Credit as listed below (note, you will need to contact UCI for information on enrolling in their courses):
These courses have been approved for Summer 2017 only. Courses taken other terms must be petitioned on a course by course basis.
The Department of Economics reviews ONLINE courses by exception only. In addition to reviewing course content to determine if the course material is equivalent to the material offered in UC San Diego economics classes, the Department of Economics reviews the methods used to ensure the academic integrity of exams. The Department does not accept online courses that only use a secure server and password to ensure the academic integrity of exams.
An example of online courses the Department accepts for credit are those with content comparable to our own classes and on-campus, proctored exams.

If you choose to take one of the courses listed above over the summer, simply save your syllabus and coursework and bring it with you when you return in the fall. Once your summer grade has posted, send a copy of your official UCI transcript to UCSD Admissions and wait for the course to post to your academic history. When the course appears on your UCSD record, bring your syllabus and saved coursework to our office and file a formal petition.
Note: The above courses have been approved. All other UCI Economics 2017 summer courses offered will not be accepted for UCSD Economics credit because they are not a good fit with our curriculum.
