Academic Benchmarks

In accordance with the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources' Academic Success Policy, the Department of Nutrition and Food Science has established benchmarks for each of the three undergraduate majors. Benchmarks are courses that should be satisfactorily completed (grade of "C" or better) by various credit levels.  For courses in a sequence, a grade of "C" or better must be earned before the student can proceed to the next course in the sequence. Students who have not met the benchmarks will be required to meet with their academic advisor to discuss progress towards their academic degree.
