New graduates are prepared to work as entry level registered dietitians after obtaining and completing an ADA supervised practice. The supervised practice follows graduation and entry is based on GPA, work experience, and faculty recommendations. After completion of this work-related experience, the individual is eligible for the national registration exam to become a registered dietitian (RD).

Program completion of the Didactic Program in Nutrition and Dietetics is based on meeting university requirements for graduation. A verification statement will be issued to each student completing the degree requirements. The verification statement is required for admission into a supervised practice experience and must accompany the application to take the national registration examination. These statements will be issued to the graduate following confirmation of graduation by the advising center. As the verification statements will be mailed to the graduate, a permanent address must be provided by the student during the semester preceding graduation.
