    • 15 hours for Blinn TEAM students

  • Complete ECON 323 with a B or better
  • No more than 75 total hours (including transfer credit, but excluding dual credit completed in high school)


If you do not meet one or more of the requirements listed, you may submit a waiver request. You must select that you are requesting a waiver in the Howdy system and utilize the essay boxes.

  • A waiver is a request and should not be treated as a guarantee; as it can be denied.
  • Waivers will be considered on a case by case basis, with consideration given to time to degree and remaining coursework.
  • Students with more than 75 hours but less than 90 hours at the time of application may apply to change majors via waiver. Again, consideration will be given to time to degree and remaining coursework with the possibility of denial.
