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 Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources Electives may be selected from any courses in the college not already required for the major.
2 One of the University General Education Electives, Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources Electives, Unrestricted Electives or a course taken as part of one of the minors must be a Communicating through Writing (WC) course. Unrestricted Electives may be selected from any courses not already required for the major.
3 Select one course (4 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.
4 Chosen from the University General Education list .
5 AREC 201 * (4) or ECON 201 * (4) or ECON 207 * (4) satisfies the University General Education – Social Sciences 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.
6 Select sequence from BIOL 101 *-BIOL 102 *, BIOL 111 *-BIOL 112 *, BIOL 150 *-BIOL 160 *-BIOL 159 *, or BIOL 158 *-BIOL 168 *-BIOL 167 *.
7 Students should select one of the minors offered by the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources: animal science, biosystems engineering technology, entomology and plant pathology, environmental and soil sciences, food and agricultural business, agricultural leadership, food science, food technology, forestry, international agriculture and natural resources, natural resource and environmental economics, plant sciences, wildlife and fisheries science, watershed, or one of the minors in the College of Communication and Information (see listing in this catalog), or submit an individualized plan of study before the third year, for approval by the advisor, department head, and the Dean’s Office. If the minor is less than 24 hours, the excess hours will become Unrestricted Electives.
8 Any courses not already required for the major.
