Admission to the program is dependent upon completion of an undergraduate degree at a US regionally accredited university or college and course work accredited by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND®) of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. If you have already completed a dietetic internship and haven’t received graduate credit for it, you may apply for a maximum of 12 semester hours of Credit by Examination (CBE) and save up to 30 percent on your master’s degree.
