The EconAid Center provides drop-in peer tutoring with undergraduate tutors, graduate students, and faculty for students in the core economics courses (101, 400, 410, and 420). as well as select upper-division economics courses.  It is also a space for professors, TAs, and ULAs to hold office hours and help sessions as well as a general study space for economics students.  Please check the schedule (coming soon) to see when help will be available for your course.  The center opens on the first day of class and closes on the last day of exams (we will have an abbreviated schedule during the first week of classes). The EconAid Center is closed on days that the University is closed. Please be sure to sign in when you visit our drop-in center.
