Additional Notes

  • GWS, GHA, GQ, GN, GA, GH, and GS are codes used to identify General Education requirements.
  • US, IL, and US;IL are codes used to designate courses that satisfy University United States/International Cultures requirements.

Scheduling patterns of courses not taught each semester: Courses taught spring semester only - NUTR 170 (suggested, not required).

ADVISING NOTES: MATH 022 or ALEKS score 61% or higher, or placement into MATH 110 or MATH 140 is a prerequisite for CHEM 110.

PROGRAM NOTES: BI SC 004 (GN) is suggested for students with less than two years of HS biology prior to taking BIOL 141.

Entrance-to-Major (ETM) requires the completion of NUTR 251, CHEM 110 and BIOL 141 with a grade of C or better. Students currently enrolled in any of these classes should request the Nutritional Sciences/Applied Sciences option for the Entrance-to-Major process. After completion of the three classes contact a Nutrition adviser to be switched into the Dietetics option.

LIMITATIONS ON SOURCE AND TIME FOR CREDIT ACQUISITION Per Senate policy 83-80.5, the college dean or campus chancellor and program faculty may require up to 24 credits of course work in the major to be taken at the location or in the college or program where the degree is earned. Most majors in Health and Human Development require students to complete up to 24 credits for the major through courses taken at University Park. Courses taken at other Penn State campuses may not be counted toward this 24 credit minimum.
