FALL 2018 Registration News

 

fall 2018 News


Some NTR courses have pre-reqs that may differ from the Course Schedule.  Please see below for updates on any pre-req changes for FALL 2018 NTR courses.

NTR 312 Intro to Nutritional Sciences & NTR 112L Nutritional Sciences Lab

  • Correct pre-req:
    • C- or better in CH 301
    • C- or better in a calculus or statistics course. Options: M408C, M408D, M408N, M408R, SDS 302, SDS 304, SDS 306, SDS 325H or SDS 328M
    • Credit or registration for BIO 311C, CH 302

  • NTR 112L must be added FIRST, and then NTR 312 once you are registered for NTR 112L.  If you are on a waitlist for NTR 112L, you must wait to get in before you can add yourself to NTR 312.

NTR 112L is going to be required for all students taking NTR 312, beginning with fall 2018 registration.  Even if you are not a nutrition major but are taking NTR 312, you must also take NTR 112L beginning fall 2018.

 

NTR 307 & NTR 107L Intro to Food Science & Lab

  • Nutrition Majors: you are required to take the lecture NTR 307 and lab NTR 107L together.  Add NTR 107L Lab first, then NTR 307 lecture.

  • Non-Nutrition Majors: you are eligible to only take the lecture NTR 307 unless you have previously discussed a special circumstance with the SoHE Advisors.

**Note for Prospective Nutrition Students**

NTR 107L is restricted to declared Nutrition majors only until the last day of registration, Friday 4/27.  On 4/27, students in any major can add themselves to 107L (or waitlist as needed).

If you become a nutrition major after registration in April, you will be required to get a spot in NTR 107L in order to stay in the NTR 307 (since Nutrition majors must take NTR 307 & 107L together).

You may add yourself to NTR 307 only while not declared as a nutrition major, however you will eventually have to get into NTR 107L if you change to nutrition/are accepted to CNS as an internal transfer student before fall 2018.
