Nutrition students will also receive an email from Human Ecology Advising about one week before registration begins with updates related to NTR courses. 

See NTR Prereq Updates tab for important prereq information before you register - some courses have fewer prereqs than what is listed on the Course Schedule. 


Registration News


See below for important NTR registration news & reminders including:

  • Summer NTR classes
  • NTR Fall Updates: NTR 365 Obesity & Metablic Health added to schedule, NTR 343 time change, NTR 365 Global Food Systems Design cancelled
  • Reserved classes - ex. NTR 312, 107L, 355, 352
  • Prerequisite waiver situations (NTR 312, NTR 338W if you claimed AP or transferred stats credit; and common waivers needed if you took NTR 306 before switching to Nutrition)
  • Lecture/lab registration 

Also see the other tabs above for important updates before you register related to prerequisites, NTR 365 topics, Dietetics updates, and more!

Summer NTR Classes:

NTR 306 Fundamentals Nutrition (nine week session): For non-nutrition & non-public health majors.  No prerequisites required.  

NTR 312 Intro Nutritional Sciences (first session) - updated to in person

  • No prerequisites required!  A waiver is not required to register; the system will allow anyone to register.  It is helpful to have taken BIO 311C beforehand, though.

NTR 326 Intermediate Metabolism (second session) - updated to in person

  • CH 320M Organic Chemistry will NOT be enforced as a pre/co-requisite during summer only.
  • Enforced Prerequisites (summer only):
    • BIO 311C & NTR 312 with C- or better required by the start of the second session.
    • It is okay to be taking any prereq courses during the first summer session, and prereqs will be checked at end of first session.  
  • This is a great way to catch up or get ahead on your major requirements!  NTR 326 is a prereq for quite a few NTR classes.


fall NTR changes:   

Addition: NTR 365 Obesity & Metabolic Health (topic 4) has been added for fall 2022, unique #54114. 

  • Note the enforced prerequisites will only be NTR 326 with C- or better (or NTR 312H).  The course schedule lists BIO 365s, however this is not required.
  • This topic is normally a spring class, and we are unsure yet if this is planned to be offered also in spring 2023.  Stay tuned for updates but plan to take in fall if this fits with your requirements. 
  • NTR 365 Nutrition & Genes (topic 2) will be offered in spring 2023
  • See more details on the NTR 365 Topics tab above.

Cancellation: NTR 365 Global Food Systems Design is cancelled for fall 2022.  The Dept is hoping to offer in spring 2023.

Time Change: NTR 343 Vitamins & Minerals was changed to 3:30-5:00pm on Tues/Thurs. This is now reflected on the Course Schedule.


"Reserved" Classes: 

Nutrition majors are able to add/waitlist for the following "reserved" classes in fall 2022.  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  
    • Must meet all prereqs listed in the Course Schedule:
      • Statistics is a required prerequisite for NTR 312 effective fall 2022 (previously, calculus or statistics was a prereq, but now stats is specifically required). 
      • If you claimed AP or transferred credit for stats, you will need to email headvising@austin.utexas.edu to request a prerequisite waiver (see details below).
    • Non-Nutrition majors: will have a harder time getting into this class, however all majors can add/waitlist for NTR 312. 
      • It is typically offered over the first summer session, too. 
      • NTR 306 is an alternative option to non-majors.  If you make an A in NTR 306 (not an A-), and then become a Nutrition major, it can substitute for the "NTR 312" requirement. 
  • 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 365 Nutr Biochem: Busting Myths - reserved to Plan II students only!

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




You will need to request a Prerequisite Waiver in the situations below to avoid issues during registration.  

Email headvising@austin.utexas.edu before or during registration.
Subject Line: Prereq Waiver for [Course You Are Adding] - Name & EID

  • Claim AP or transferred Statistics credit ("SDS 301"), and you need to register for:
    • NTR 312 Intro Nutritional Sciences
    • NTR 338W Issues in Nutrition & Health

Please note that BIO 325 Genetics now requires a pre or co-requisites of SDS 302F or 320E effective fall 2022, and SDS 301 is not allowed to count (if you already took genetics, disregard).

  • Took NTR 306 Fundamentals of Nutrition and need to register for:
    • NTR 307*
    • NTR 218* 
    • NTR 326
    • NTR 334*

      *must be registered into the corresponding lab first before waiver can be given 


Add lecture first then lab:

  • NTR 326 & 126L.  NTR 126L can be taken separately, the semester after NTR 326 if needed.


Add lab first, then lecture (must be taken in same semester):

-Add yourself to two waitlists for the lab if possible.

-Add yourself to the lecture after you've gotten into the lab.

  • NTR 307 & 107L Food Science -  "reserved" means priority for nutrition majors. All students can add/waitlist.

  • NTR 218 & 118L Assessment of Nutritional Status

  • NTR 334 & 234L Foodservice Systems Mgmt

  • NTR 324 & 124L Advanced Food Science - includes Upper Division Writing Flag & Independent Inquiry Flag at the moment. Check prereqs, and confirm flags on the Course Schedule each semester as these are subject to change.
