We do not accept online courses as prerequisite equivalent when grades are not substantially based on proctored or identity-secure administration of a cumulative final exam (i.e. 50% or more of the final grade).

Courses that meet for less than 4 weeks (for example, winter session courses) will not be accepted for transfer towards the Economics Major.
