This is a second admissions program with both on-line and on-campus delivery methods. Through the on-line delivery method, this program is available to students who secure supervised practice experiences more than 100 miles from Eastern Michigan University’s campus. The program begins in the fall of the junior year. Please be aware that admission to the University is not a guarantee of entry into the dietetics program. Important information and the application for both the on-line and on-campus programs can be found at the School of Health Sciences website. The application deadline for both the on-line and on-campus programs is January 15 for consideration for entrance into the professional phase of the program the following fall semester.
Upon successful completion of the CP curriculum and degree, students will be eligible to write for the Registration Examination for Dietitians. Passage of the exam will provide the recognized credential of Registered Dietitian through the Commission on Dietetics Registration of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
