Admission Requirements

There are no entrance requirements for the program. However, many courses need to be taken in sequence. In addition, most of the DIE prefixed courses are only offered once a year.

Therefore, students are encouraged to talk with the program director, the practicum coordinator, and the AS program academic advisor to schedule completion of the program coursework to prevent any delay in finishing.      

You also must become a student member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and pass a LEVEL II background check when you take DIE 2000. Membership information can be obtained from the program director.
