Admission - MS in Human Nutrition

Non-degree admission is not allowed.  You must be formally admitted to the program in order to take coursework.

Students with an overall grade point average (GPA) or 3.0 or higher may apply for admission.  Students with a 3.0 GPA or higher in their last 60 hours of coursework may be considered for admission.

While being a registered dietitian is not a requirement for entering the master's program, students should be aware of the laws governing the practice of dietetics in their respective states. Most states require persons who practice dietetics to be a registered dietitian. This master's degree does not provide eligibility to sit for the registration examination to become a registered dietitian, nor does it provide eligibility to apply for dietetic internships. The on-campus master's degree provides an opportunity to participate in the coordinated program in dietetics and to become eligible to sit for the registration examination. Additional courses, most of which are available by distance, may be taken to meet the criteria for applying for a dietetic internship.
