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. 


Registration News


See below for important NTR registration news & reminders including:

  • "Reserved" classes
  • Prerequisite waiver situations (NTR 312, NTR 338W if you claimed or transferred stats credit; and common waivers needed if you took NTR 306 before switching to Nutrition)
  • Lecture/lab registration 

"Reserved" classes: 

Nutrition majors are able to add/waitlist for the following "reserved" classes.  Reserved means because priority is given to Nutrition majors into open seats. 

Non-Nutrition majors can still add/waitlist for these classes, and you will probably have to waitlist.  Please add yourself to the waitlist as needed.  (It looks like this.)

  • NTR 312 Intro Nutritional Sciences  
    • Add yourself to waitlist if needed, and you will be added from there asap if space is available.  Non-majors can also access the waitlist.
    • Must meet all prereqs listed in the Course Schedule. 
      • If you claimed AP credit for stats, or transferred into UT with stats credit, you will need to email to request a prerequisite waiver (see details below).
    • Non-Nutrition majors will have a harder time getting into this class, however all majors can add/waitlist for NTR 312.  It is typically offered over the first summer session, too.  NTR 306 is an alternative option to non-majors.  If you make an A in NTR 306 (not an A-), and then become a Nutrition major, it can substitute for the "NTR 312" requirement. 
  • NTR 307 & 107L Food Science Lab  
    • Nutrition majors: Add lab first before lecture. Waitilist for two sections of the lab as needed. Must get into the 107L lab before adding 307.  Must be taken in same semester.
    • Non-Nutrition majors: can take NTR 307 by itself (ex. for Food & Society Certificate or as an elective; must meet the NTR 306 prereq).  All majors can add/waitlist for NTR 307 & 107L.  Use waitlist as needed due to limited space in the class.  If you eventually become a Nutrition major, you may need to take the lab depending on your degree plan.


Research & Field Experience Classes

Must receive pre-approval to register for these.  See registration details here

  • NTR 355 Undergrad Research in Nutrition

  • NTR 352 Field Experience in Nutrition



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

A few situations will require that you request a prerequisite waiver.  Email headvising@austin.utexas.edu before you register including Subject Line: Prereq Waiver for [Course You Are Adding] - Name & EID

  • Registering for NTR 312 Intro Nutritional Sciences? Request a waiver if you:
    • Claimed AP credit for stats or transferred into UT with stats credit (SDS 301)
    • Have calculus credit but won't have stats credit by spring 2022.  Beginning fall 2022, the SDS 302/302F (or 320E) prereq will be enforced for NTR 312 and other NTR classes, so take as soon as possible.

  • Registering for NTR 338W Issues in Nutrition & Health?  Request a waiver if you:
    • Claimed AP credit for stats or transferred into UT with stats credit (SDS 301)
  • Took NTR 306 Fundamentals of Nutrition and are trying to register for:
    • NTR 307*
    • NTR 218* 
    • NTR 326
    • NTR 334*

      *must be registered into the corresponding lab first before waiver can be given



Add lecture first then lab:

  • NTR 326 & 126L.  NTR 126L can be taken separately, the semester after NTR 326 if needed.


Add lab first, then lecture (must be taken in same semester):

-Add yourself to two waitlists for the lab if possible.

-Add yourself to the lecture after you've gotten into the lab.

  • NTR 307 & 107L -  "reserved" means priority for nutrition majors. All students can add/waitlist.

  • NTR 218 & 118L 

  • NTR 334 & 234L 

  • NTR 324 & 124L - includes Upper Division Writing Flag & Independent Inquiry Flag at the moment. Check prereqs, and confirm flags on the Course Schedule each semester as these are subject to change.
