           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.
