General Updates

 

NTR news 

Nutrition students will 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.

Important News:

  • NTR 365 Global Food Systems Design (54165)
    • Can count for:
      • BS degree options: "NTR 365" requirement 
      • BSA degree: upper-division NTR hours
    • See more course details here
    • No prequisites.
    • Live internet course with both UT students & students at a University in Guatemala (Francisco Marroquín University)!
    • Very limited enrollment of up to 15 UT students. 
    • "Reserved" on the Course Schedule means NTR majors will receive priority into open seats; all majors can register/add themselves to waitlist though.

  • NTR 324 & 124L Advanced Food Science: now offered fall semester too (used to be spring-only)!  This currently has Writing and Independent iInquiry flags.  Add lab first before lecture.

  • Coordinated Program in Dietetics Updates:  This program is transitioning to incorporate one additional year for a Master of Science (MS) in Nutritional Sciences.  The change will be effective for those applying in fall 2021.  Dr. Monica Meadows will be holding weekly office hours the rest of this semester for any questions:  Wednesdays from 3:15-4:30pm starting April 7th: https://utexas.zoom.us/j/91404878514 
  • Dietetics Degree Requirement Updates: A few important updates were shared via email with all Nutrition students on Wednesday April 7th:
(1) NTR 355M Advanced Foodservice Management no longer offered starting fall 2021.  Take MAN 320F Foundations of Management & Organizational Behavior instead to fulfill requirement.

For those who haven't already taken NTR 355M, you will need to take MAN 320F instead to fulfill this requirement.  If you already have NTR 355M credit, no action is required.  
 
Also, MAN 320F should now be planned before NTR 334 & 234L Foodservice Systems Mgmt:
  • If you had already planned to take NTR 334 & 234L this fall and there isn't a great way to change this, you can still go ahead and take 334 & 234L in fall.
  • Starting for spring 2022, MAN 320F will be an enforced prerequisite to NTR 334 & 234L. 
  • Reasoning: The MAN 320F course will cover management concepts that will then be expanded on in NTR 334 Foodservice Systems Management.
Other notes:
  • MAN 320F is offered summer, fall, spring.  The prerequisite is 45 total hrs completed, so you can usually take as early as spring sophomore year.
  • If you have taken or plan to take MAN 320F for the business minor, it will overlap and cover the major requirement too!
 
(2) "ACC 310F or ACC 311" Requirement Update (waived under certain criteria):

  • For students taking NTR 334 & 234L Foodservice Systems Mgmt during fall 2021 and later: "ACC 310F or ACC 311" is no longer required.  It will be waived in this situation only.  If you meet this criteria and are currently taking/have already taken ACC 310F and have any concerns, please connect with your academic advisor for guidance.
  • For students who took NTR 334 & 234L during spring 2021 and earlier: you still need the "ACC 310F or ACC 311" credit before graduation.
Reasoning: The NTR 334 & 234L course is being updated starting fall 2021 to include the necessary accounting content for dietetics students.
 
 
Please take a look at any of your previously created degree plans to see how you can incorporate these changes, and plan to connect with your academic advisor if you have any questions.  Updated sample plans for reference are available here

 

Lower Division Class Notes: 


NTR 312 Intro to Nutritional Sciences

  • NTR 112L lab no longer offered/required effective spring 2021 (students taking 112L in fall 2020 need to complete).  This prereq can be ignored and won't prevent you from registering.
  • Pre-reqs: C- or better in CH 301; C- in calculus or statistics; and C- or concurrent registration in BIO 311C and CH 302. 
    • The system will allow you to register.  All students will be checked after registration to ensure prerequisites will be satisfied, otherwise you will be dropped from the course. 
  • "Reserved" means priority is given to NTR and Public Health majors.  Any major can add the course or waitlist though.
    • Nutrition majors: add yourself to the waitlist as needed and you have first priority to be added from the waitlist into an available seat.


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

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

    • "Reserved" means priority for nutrition majors, add to waitlist as needed! (two sections if possible)

  • Non-Nutrition Majors:  You are eligible to register for NTR 307 by itself.

  • Those in CNS planning to become NTR majors by fall 2021:  you are able to add yourself to the waitlist for NTR 107L lab any time during registration and add/drop.  Once your major is updated to Nutrition, you will have priority into any available seats during add/drop if a seat opens. You will need to be in both NTR 107L & 307 by the time school starts to keep your spot in the classes.

 

COMMON PREREQUISITE ISSUES: 


You may need to request a PREREQUISITE WAIVER in some cases, to avoid issues during registration.

  • NTR 338W Issues in Nutrition & Health (Wr & II flag): If you want to take NTR 338W but don't have physiology or biochem credit.  Must have C- or better NTR 326, a stats class, and upper-division standing (60 hrs completed) by end summer 2021 for waiver to be given.

  • If you took NTR 306 and are trying to register for: NTR 307*, NTR 218*, NTR 326, NTR 334*
    • *waiver only given after you've added yourself to the labs for these
