CATS
Comprehensive Academic Tracking System
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.
HOW DOES CATS WORK?
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 PAWS 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.
