Pre-registration for Spring 2022

Economics courses numbered between 100 and 399 no longer require pre-registration for either the course or its discussion sections, and there is no lottery for ECON 110, 111  or courses with discussions sections.

Yale College Spring 2022 course enrollment opens on November 18, at 9:00AM, and closes at 5:00pm, December 15, 2021. Registration worksheets will open within Yale Course Search.

This page provides pre-registration instructions and guidance for economics majors and those students who are considering taking economics courses this spring.

ADVISING

FOR ECONOMICS MAJORS

All students must discuss their plans for spring 2022 with an advisor before December 15. Advisors are assigned to economics majors based on college of residence. Economics majors should consult the advisor webpage, scroll down to find the advisors for their college, and meet an advisor during office hours.

FOR MATH-ECONOMICS MAJORS

Math-Economics majors should meet with the DUS to discuss their schedules. 

COURSE SELECTION

CONSULT WITH COURSE PROFESSORS

In addition to Yale Course Search and the economics course description and course schedule websites, information on economics courses you may be considering can be gathered by speaking with the course professor. Professors teaching economics courses this spring will hold office hours to answer questions about these courses.
