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.

See below for notes about "reserved" classes, too.

Class Time Change Updates (Fall 2021):

  • NTR 315 Nutrition Through Lifecycle (#54005): Updating to MWF 2-3pm
  • NTR 126L Nutritional Sciences Lab: There is now a lecture meeting, Friday 9-10am, for all sections.
  • NTR 337 Epidemiology in Nutritional Sciences (#54105): Now updated to T/TH 2-3:30pm


Important News:

  • Summer Classes w/ Reduced Prereqs:  NTR 312 (first session) & NTR 326 (second session).  Great way to catch up or get ahead.  See details here!

  • NTR 365 Global Food Systems Design (54165)
    • Can count for:
      • BS degree options: "NTR 365" requirement (exception for HANS: it can count for "additional nutrition hours" or the "9 additional hours approved by honors advisor")
        • Will be applied to Degree Audit after registration is over.
      • 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 (BS Nutrition: Option 1): A few important updates were shared via email with all Nutrition students on Wednesday April 7th.  This impacts Didactic Program in Dietetics, Coordinated Program in Dietetics, and those in the HANS program who are also completing Dietetics requirements:
(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


"Reserved" classes: 

Nutrition majors are able to add/waitlist for the following.  It says "reserved" because priority is given to Nutrition majors into open seats.  Please add yourself to the waitlist as needed.  (It looks like this.)

  • NTR 312 Intro Nutritional Sciences.  The NTR 112L is no longer required.  You will be able to register without this.  Must meet all other listed prereqs by the start of fall 2021.
  • NTR 307 & 107L Food Science Lab.  Add lab before lecture.
  • NTR 365 Global Food Systems Design.  Limited enollment, see details here on how this will count.
Reserved for Liberal Arts Plan II students only (nutrition majors can't add this one):
  • NTR 365 Nutrition Biochem: Busting Myths
Research & Field Experience Classes:
  • NTR 355/355H & NTR 352 - requires pre-approval from a faculty supervisor. See details here.


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

Please email at headvising@austin.utexas.edu with name, EID, and explanation of situation if:

  • 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
