Registration News



Summer 2024 NTR COurses 

NTR F312 Intro Nutritional Sciences (first session): No prerequisites enforced; no waiver required to register.
CANCELLED: NTR 326 Intermediate Nutrition & Metabolism (now planned to be cancelled for summer 2024)

Fall 2024 Course Schedule Updates

NTR 339L Experimental Methods & Design in Nutr Sciences replaced NTR 337 Epidemiology in Nutr Sciences.

  • For 20-22 BS degrees that list 337 as a requirement or option, 339L is the replacement. It is NOT a lab and can be combined with other labs.

New Additions:

  • NTR 316 Culture & Food: typically Fall-only
  • NTR 234L: additional MW section added
  • NTR 330L: replaced NTR 330, and time change TTH 12:30-2
  • NTR 365.2 Nutrition & Genes: typically has been Spring-only but changing to be offered in Fall 2024
    • Prereqs: NTR 326 or BIO 325 with C- or better

Time Changes:

  • NTR 317L: pending change to MW 3-5pm (this alleviates conflict with NTR 307)
  • NTR 162 Standards, Ethics, Credentialing for Dietetic Practice: now T 3:30-4:30
  • NTR 330L: changed to TTH 12:30-2pm

Recent Course Number Changes

  • 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 330L Advanced Nutrition Assessment & Counseling: previously NTR 330
  • 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. If needed, add yourself to a waitlist. Look for the 'add to waitlist' option after adding class (screenshot example).

The following courses require pre-approval with supervising professor to register during initial registration cycle or add/drop time (registration instructions here).

  • NTR 355 Undergrad Research in Nutrition
  • NTR 352 Field Experience in Nutrition

 NTR 365 Busting Myths topic is reserved for Liberal Arts Plan II students only.


A Prerequisite Waiver must be requested in these situations to avoid issues during registration.

    PBH Majors: can access BIO 326R starting Thursday, April 18th after 4pm. It is open earlier for PBH because this is a degree requirement for them.

  • If your health professions pathway requires two semesters CH 320M & CH 320N, with CH 220C two-hour lab, then please avoid taking CH 120K.
