The dietetic internship is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Dietetics Education (CADE) of The American Dietetic Association. CADE is a specialized accrediting body recognized by the Commission on Recognition of Postsecondary Accreditation and the United States Department of Education. Enrollment is limited and admission is competitive. Admission requires verification of completion of a bachelor’s degree that meets Didactic Program in Dietetics requirements of The American Dietetic Association; GRE test scores; the overall GPA or the GPA for the last 60 s.h. of course work; and The American Dietetic Association computer matching. The application deadline is mid-February. Once admitted to the dietetic internship program, students are required to apply for non-degree graduate student status before beginning the program. The dietetic internship program provides supervised dietetic practice in three required areas: clinical nutrition; foodservice management; and community nutrition, which includes a rural health component. The program requires 13 s.h. of supervised dietetic practice including 3 graduate practicum courses (NUTR 6031 , NUTR 6032 , NUTR 6033 ). Additional information and an application are available from the dietetics program director.
