Registration News


See below for important NTR registration news & reminders about: NTR schedule changes, reserved classes, prereq waiveres, and lecture/lab registration tips.

Also see the NTR Prereq Updates and NTR 365 Topics tabs above for important prereq information before you register, because some courses have **fewer prereqs** than what is listed on the Course Schedule!


NTR Schedule Changes (Spring 2023):


  • NTR 331 International Nutrition: Social/Environmental Policies

Time Changes:

  • NTR 126L Nutritional Sciences Labs: Friday discussion changed to 11am (instead of 9am).

  • NTR 315 Nutrition Through the Lifecycle (#53415): Changed to T/TH 2:00-3:30pm with Dr. Widen. 

  • NTR 337 Principles of Epidemiology in Nutritional Sciences (#53505): Changed to MWF 12-1pm with Dr. Hernandez. 

  • NTR 343 Vitamins & Minerals (#53530): Changed to T/TH 3:30-5:00pm


"Reserved" Classes: 

Nutrition majors are able to add/waitlist for the following "reserved" classes.  Reserved means priority is given to Nutrition majors into open seats. 

If needed, always add yourself to a waitlist (look for the 'add to waitlist' option below the error message that says the class is full/reserved). 

Non-Nutrition majors can still add/waitlist for these classes, and you will probably have to waitlist at first.  Please add yourself to the waitlist as needed.  (It looks like this.)

  • NTR 312 Intro Nutritional Sciences 

  • NTR 307 & 107L Food Science Lab  
    • Nutrition majors: Add lab first before lecture. Waitilist for two sections of the lab as needed.  Must be taken in same semester.
    • Non-Nutrition majors: can take NTR 307 by itself (ex. for Food & Society Certificate or as an elective; must meet the NTR 306 prereq).  All majors can add/waitlist for NTR 307 & 107L.

  • NTR 355 Research & NTR 352 Field Experience Classes: Must receive pre-approval to register for these during registration or during the add/drop time.  See registration details here.
