Prerequisites courses

The list of prerequisites for the dietetics program does not include university degree requirements for courses such as computer literacy, critical thinking, English, foreign language, etc. All grades of "D" for prerequisite courses must be repeated.

If you want to check on the equivalency of similar courses at another college or university, see transferring credits from other institutions or visit the transfer credit search engine to see if the courses are equivalent. You can also request a list of equivalent courses for many local colleges not included on our site from the University Advising Center.

You do not need to have all the prerequisite courses completed to apply by the April 1 deadline; you just need a plan to complete them before the following fall semester. However, the more of these courses that are completed at the time of application, the more competitive your application will be.

Students with a transcript from another country (including Canada) must obtain a course-by-course transcript evaluation.

You can access the upcoming semester Schedule of Classes to find out when specific courses will be offered.
