Each week during the school year, Applied Economics Advisor Tjodie Richardson sends out information to the undergraduate students in our department. Here you will find the latest email, along with an archive of earlier emails at the bottom of this page. 
Week 10 - Winter 2019


Good morning and welcome to the last week of regular classes for this term. If I have any announcements, I will put out a Finals Week Weekly Info. If not, I want to wish everyone good luck on your finals and final projects. Have a good Spring Break.

Spring Term Registration Phase 1 will be open until Wednesday, March 13 for anyone that hasn’t registered yet. Registration will not be available during the day on Thursday, March 14. Phase II starts on Thursday, March 14 at 8:30pm. Therefore, if you still need to register for a class, you can do so at that time and will continue through the weekend. You can check your day and time just as if you did for Phase I, but see Phase II. If you have any questions, please let me know.

OSU Collegiate Farm Bureau Speakers:

They will be having two guest speakers from NRCS tomorrow March 13th 2019 at 7pm in the Crops Building Room 121. The topic of discussion will include; programs, job opportunities, and what their role is within the agriculture industry.

Accelerated Master’s Platform (AMP):

We have a program here that you can apply to our MS program during your Junior year. You need to have a 3.25 GPA and have completed at least 105 credits.

The application deadline will be Friday of Finals Week this Winter Term Friday, March 22. You apply through the Graduate School website. You will need to make sure you find the AMP application. In addition, you will need a code from myself. You won’t be charged an application fee.

How does it work? Successful applicants can apply a maximum of twelvegraduate credits taken during their undergraduate senior year to both their undergraduate and master’s degrees. Students in this program will complete the same requirements as all MS students in Applied Economics, including choosing an area of concentration. If you have any questions on this, you can talk to me when you come in for Spring Term advising or if you want to schedule, a separate appointment that would be fine.
