The Economics Minor is approved! http://catalog.illinois.edu/undergraduate/las/academic-units/economics/#...
Please share the information I have provided below my signature with students and encourage them to complete the ‘interest form’ so they receive details on the minor as soon as it is available (only students should complete this form). We will share all updated information through AdvisL and have more on our website when ready (hopefully by the end of the semester or early summer).
We are always happy to answer your questions (just not about the Minor, yet). CS+ECON has also been approved, and our B.S. in Econometrics and Quantitative Economics is in the final stages of approval (hopefully in the summer)-- we will have more information on those as soon as possible. We are also renumbering ECON courses (ECON 490s are finally moving into new courses!), so stay tuned for updates on those as well.
Course Information (ECON Restrictions, Overrides, 400-level Course Updates, Syllabi, etc.), may be found on our ECON Course Website: http://go.economics.illinois.edu/CoursesUndergrad and other information found on our Economics Website: http://www.economics.illinois.edu/undergrad/info/. We meet with any student interested in the ECON B.A. Major, so please have them make an advising appointment: http://go.illinois.edu/EconAppointment (unless they are interested in the Minor, CS+, or BS~ then please refer to the info above).
I will be in contact with more information soon, happy registration advising in the meantime!

Information for Students (images attached for social media or email distribution):
Students interested in the *NEW* Economics Minor:
We have created an ‘Economics Minor Interest Form’ students may complete if they would like to receive emails with details about the minor (application process, course registration, etc.) as soon as it is available: http://go.economics.illinois.edu/MinorInterest
We hope to have more information in the early summer, if not before. We are not currently meeting with students to discuss the minor, so please complete the form so you may receive all of the updated information when available. Overrides into courses are not currently provided, and we are not accepting applications yet. In the meantime, general information may be found here.
