Dietetics Application Process
Each of the major programs offered in HNES have specific criteria for admission into the respective professional programs.
Freshman - Pre-professional Status
All freshman entering any of the department majors are listed as having pre-professional status. During spring semester of the sophomore year (for dietetics pre-professional) students who wish to move into the professional program must complete and submit an application. Pre-professional students may not enroll in HNES restricted courses.
Students selected into the professional programs are listed as having professional status and are eligible to enroll in previously restricted courses.
All transfer students (from other institutions or from other programs on campus) must complete a program application in order to be considered for professional status. Transfer students must be accepted into the professional program before they can enroll in HNES restricted courses.
NDSU does have transfer agreements with a number of other institutions. You can learn more about these agreements by clicking on the following link: Program Transfer Agreements.
The following courses are restricted to Dietetics professional status students: HNES 351.
My Organization on Blackboard
All students listed as professional status are placed in a degree specific My Organization on Blackboard. That Blackboard site provides additional program information including the program manual, application packet, and internship manuals.
Upon admission into a professional program, students will pay program fees each semester until graduation. Program fees are used to purchase new equipment, supplies, support student travel to professional conferences, provide funding to hire lecturers as needed, and other activities designed to benefit students and student learning. Fees for each of the programs are listed below:
Dietetic Education Program: $750 per semester
Didactic Program in Dietetics: $300 per semester
