IMPORTANT INFORMATION FROM THE COLLEGE OF
AGRICULTURE

The Comprehensive Academic Tracking System (CATS) is designed to help you reach
academic success at LSU and make sure that you are progressing towards graduation
each semester.


Each major and concentration has a
RECOMMENDED PATH
that is the optimal path
to graduate in four years.


Within each
RECOMMENDED PATH
are
CRITICAL REQUIREMENTS
. These are
specific courses or other performance measurements that each department has
identified as mandatory for progression in their major.


CATS checks your progress each semester by tracking you on the
CRITICAL
REQUIREMENTS
needed, and gives you feedback when you are not meeting these
requirements.


If you are off
-
track 2 times in the same major, you will be forced to change your
major. This process will be completed with the assistance of counselors and career
services.

CATS

Comprehensive Academic Tracking System

Just before scheduling for the upcoming
semester,
and
again after
final
grades are
posted,
CATS checks your progress on the current semester’s
CRITICAL
RERQUIREMENTS
for your major
.


If you meet the
CRITICAL REQUIREMENTS
from your
RECOMMENDED PATH
, you
will not receive an email notification
.


If you are
not

meeting the
CRITICAL REQUIREMENTS
from your
RECOMMENDED
PATH
, you will receive an email containing a link to your
CATS STATUS

screen on
your
myLSU

account.
This will give you detailed information regarding your
unmet
CRITICAL REQUIREMENTS
, as well as contact information for your
counselor. A flag
will be
put on your registration that requires that you see your
counselor before you may schedule for the upcoming term.


Students are tracked during the fall and spring semesters only. Summer terms
and intersessions are periods students can use to complete missing
CRITICAL
REQUIREMENTS
.

HOW DOES CATS WORK?
