Completion Requirements/Verification Statement
Students must successfully complete the outlined program of study and receive a BS degree in Dietetics. (See undergraduate catalog for degree plan). In addition, students must maintain at least a 2.5 GPA in major and support area requirements with a grade of ‘C’ or better in each course. In instances where courses are substituted or completed as independent study, students are required to take and successfully complete an examination covering the relevant knowledge and competencies in those areas. If all the above criteria are met, the program will issue a verification statement to the student.
Each student must receive a verification statement to be eligible to apply for entry into supervised practice.
