Writing Flag Update: NTR 327L Adv Food Science Laboratory 

NTR 327L Adv Food Science Lab (previously NTR 324 & 124L) is approved for upper-division Writing Flag and Independent Inquiry flags.  The Course Schedule is now updated with a new unique #.

  • Prerequisites: NTR 307 & 107L with a C- or better
  • Note the NTR 326 and NTR 337 prereq listed in the course schedule is not enforced. No waiver required to register.

time changes: NTR 330L 

NTR 330L Adv Nutrition Assessment & Counseling had a time change to MW 8:30-10am

We realize this is occurring during registration and may create a conflict with another course for some of you, however there were several important factors that contributed to the need for this time change.
For Dietetics students who are also taking NTR 307 & 107L Intro Food Science in spring 2024: The new time for 330L conflicts with NTR 307 lecture. Please prioritize NTR 307 & 107L for spring 2024, and you can move NTR 330L to fall 2024. This is also okay for those who are interested in applying to the ICPD program during the fall 2024 application cycle (if this is the case, please take NTR 330L and NTR 371 in fall 2024 because they can definitely be taken concurrently). 
Other important considerations for Dietetics students specifically:
  • NTR 330L can be taken before or concurrently with Medical Nutrition Therapy I/II
  • NTR 370 Medical Nutrition Therapy I is a spring-only class
  • NTR 371 Medical Nutrition Therapy II is a fall-only class (you can take 371 before 370 if needed during Senior year, or if applying to ICPD; the content is just split across two semesters)


Course number Update: NTR 330L replaced 330

NTR 330L Advanced Nutrition Assessment and Counseling (#52420): previously NTR 330 Nutrition Education and Counseling

This course is required for the BS Nutrition: Didactic Program in Dietetics and Integrated Coordinated Program in Dietetics only. Students on any option can take if they meet the prerequisite.

  • Prerequisite: NTR 312 and NTR 317L (previously NTR 218 & 118L) with C- or better; credit or registration NTR 315 and 326
  • Suggested sequence for Dietetics students as outlined on sample plans:
    1. NTR 317L Intro Nutrition Assessment & Education 
    2. NTR 330L Advanced Nutrition Assessment & Counseling
    3. NTR 370 Medical Nutrition Therapy I (spring-only)*
    4. NTR 371 Medical Nutrition Therapy II (fall-only)*

NTR 330L can be taken concurrently with NTR 370/371 if needed.
NTR 370 and NTR 371 can be taken in either order. It is okay to take NTR 371 before NTR 370 if needed.

Other Recent NTR Course Changes (effective fall 2023):

  • NTR 317L Intro Nutrition Assessment & Education: previously NTR 218 & 118L
  • NTR 327L Advanced Food Science Laboratory (Wr and II flags): previously NTR 324 & 124L
  • NTR 339L Experimental Methods & Design in Nutritional Sciences: previously NTR 337


"Reserved" Classes: 

Priority is given to Nutrition majors into open seats for "reserved" classes (except NTR 365 Nutr Biochem: Busting Myths is reserved to Plan II majors). If needed, add yourself to a waitlist. Look for the 'add to waitlist' option after adding class: It looks like this.

Non-Nutrition majors can add/waitlist for reserved classes too, and you will probably have to waitlist at first.  

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

NTR 365 Nutr Biochem: Busting Myths: Reserved to Liberal Arts Plan II majors

NTR 365L Exp Learning in Community Engagement: Reserved to students who took NTR 365 Topic 5 this fall 2023.

  • This is the second part of the two-semester sequence which begins fall semesters only (NTR 365.5 & NTR 365L). See NTR 365 tab above for more info!



A Prerequisite Waiver must be requested 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

  • Claimed AP or transferred Statistics credit ("SDS 301"), and you need to register for:
    Applicable to 20-22 and prior catalog students only. 22-24 catalog requires SDS 302F (or 320E).
    • NTR 312 Intro Nutritional Sciences 
    • NTR 338W Issues in Nutrition & Health
  • To take NTR 312 concurrently with SDS 302F (or 320E): If you are going into sophomore year or later and need to take these concurrently to catch up.
  • Took NTR 306 Fundamentals of Nutrition with grade A (before becoming a NTR major) and need to register for:
    • NTR 307 - get into lab first
    • NTR 317L - previously NTR 218 & 118L
    • NTR 326
    • NTR 334 - get into lab first


Add lab first, then lecture (must be taken in same semester). Waitlist for lab as needed.

  • NTR 307 & 107L Food Science 
  • NTR 334 & 234L Foodservice Systems Mgmt


BIOlogy and Organic Chemistry Lab announcements


  • BIO 311D: The BIO 206L lab pre/co-requisites is not enforced for NTR majors. 

  • "Reserved" Classes: ex. BIO 326R General Micro & 226L Lab, or sections of BIO 365S Physiology

    All CNS: These will open at 8am on Friday, November 10th (last day of registration) to all CNS students plus during add/drop starting in December and January.

    PBH Majors: can access BIO 326R starting Thursday, November 9th after 4pm. It is open earlier for PBH because this is a degree requirement.

  • Waitlists: BIO courses do NOT have waitlists available. 
    • Keep checking the schedule for openings especially on Friday 11/10 at 8am and during the add/drop periods in December and January (check RIS page for all access times). There is also a late add process starting on the 5th class day of the semester for BIO late-add requests.

Organic Chemistry Lab: CH 128K (one-hour option)

This year for spring registration, the Chemistry Department is offering two CH 128K Organic Chemistry Lab sections (one credit hour) available for CNS students.

This lab course is meant for health professions students who only need one hour of Organic Chemistry lab to fulfill pre-health prerequisites (ex. pre-optometry or pre-physician assistant). Check school's websites to confirm organic chemistry hours required.

Note this is not relevant to pre-medical or other pathways that need both CH 320N Organic Chemistry II and the two-hour CH 220C lab.

The CH 128K lab sections being offered to all CNS majors are:

·        50138

·        50139

Both sections are scheduled to meet on Mondays from 2:00-3:00pm and again from 6:30pm-10:00pm.

Prerequisites: C- or concurrent registration for Organic Chemistry I; and the following coursework with a grade of at least C- in each: Chemistry 302, 302C, 402C, or 302H; and 204, 317, or 104M and 104N.

Action Required: Interested students will need to contact Chemistry Student Services directly for registration information and access; students may reach out now and/or during the registration period. Reaching out does NOT guarantee you a spot in the course. 

Important: the other seven CH 128K sections (50105-50135) are reserved for Chemistry and other majors that must take this particular Organic lab for their degree requirements. Health professions students will not be able to register for the Monday afternoon lab sections.

CH 120K Available Next Fall: If students are unable to add this course to their spring schedule, the Chemistry Department plans to introduce a new one-hour Organic Chemistry lab courseCH 120K, next academic year (starting fall 2024). More information on this lab will be available during registration in April 2024.
