Are you planning on taking courses over the summer to be eligible for Fall 2015 Nutrition courses? If this is the case, please email us your unofficial transcripts showing your enrollment in the course and we will add you to the wait list.

SUMMER INVOLVEMENT

Summer is a great time to get involved! Students are encouraged to explore their nutrition interests during this time. If you are wanting to volunteer, but don't know where to start...Google different interests and then see if there is anything near you. If you find something of interest, send a professional email to inquire about any opportunities the organization may have.

DIETETICS CORNER

Students are encouraged to begin looking at internships they may apply to as early as possible in order to become familiar with their specific requirements and areas of focus.

Each internship has specific criteria for selecting applicants; however, the following things are consistently prioritized in a potential applicant:

  • GPA (3.0 or higher)
  • Nutrition and food related work experience (may be paid or volunteer)
  • Some internships may also have more specific criteria such as specifications for grades in certain coursework, a minimum number or hours of previous experience, minimum DPD or major GPA, GRE scores, etc.

Please visit the website below for more information.
