uTrack Requirements (for students entering Fall 2013 or later)

Universal Tracking (uTrack) is an academic monitoring system designed to help students stay on track for timely graduation. In order to remain on track, students must complete the minimum requirements for each tracking semester, known as milestones. Milestones include successful completion of specified courses and/or attainment of a minimum GPA. uTrack requirements only affect full-time, degree-seeking students who first entered Fall 2013 or later. uTrack does not apply to transfer students who enter prior to Fall 2015.

* Meets University General Education Requirement .
1 Select two courses (8 hours) from chemistry, physics, geology, ESS 210 ; GEOG 131 *, GEOG 132 *, GEOG 137 *. CHEM 130 * is a corequisite to BIOL 160 *. Therefore, students who choose BIOL 150 *-BIOL 160 *-BIOL 159 * should take CHEM 120 *-CHEM 130 * for their physical science electives. BIOL 111 *-BIOL 112 * has no chemistry requirement.
2 Chosen from the University General Education list .
3 AREC 201 * (4) or ECON 201 * (4) or ECON 207 * (4) satisfies the University General Education – Social Science requirement and the major requirement for economics. If the student transfers ECON LD for 3 credits, it will satisfy the major requirement but will not satisfy the General Education – Social Sciences requirement. In these cases, the student should take two courses from the Social Sciences list.
4 Select sequence (8 hours) from BIOL 101 *-BIOL 102 *, BIOL 111 *-BIOL 112 *, BIOL 150 *-BIOL 160 *-BIOL 159 *, or BIOL 158 *-BIOL 168 *-BIOL 167 *. BIOL 160 * has a CHEM 130 * corequisite, so students who choose BIOL 150 *-BIOL 160 *-BIOL 159 * should take CHEM 120 *-CHEM 130 * for their physical science electives. BIOL 111 *-BIOL 112 * has no chemistry requirement.
5 The Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources electives may be selected from any courses in the college not already required for the major.
6 Any courses not already required for the major.
