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?
Dear Student, The Comprehensive Academic Tracking System (CATS) has found critical criteria that have not been met for your degree program. Please follow the link below to view these requirements through your PAWS account: http://cats.lsu.edu/cats_status For additional information about CATS or assistance with viewing your CATS Status screen please visit: lsu.edu/registrar. Thank you, Office of the University Registrar Louisiana State University CATS NOTIFICATION EMAIL Off-track notification will contain a link to your CATS Status Screen on myLSU.
