The Cedar Crest College Didactic Program in Dietetics is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) of The American Dietetic Association (ADA), 120 South Riverside Plaza, Suite 2000, Chicago, IL 60606-6995; 800-877-1600 or 312-899-0040, ext. 5400.
Graduates of the nutrition program will receive a bachelor of science in nutrition, and those meeting the program requirements will receive a verification statement showing that they have attained the foundation knowledge and skills found in the Standards of Education of the ADA.
The nutrition program is designed to prepare students for application to an accredited internship, a graduate school or the job market. Students considering entering into the profession of dietetics as a registered dietitian (RD) must complete these three components:
- A bachelor’s degree (it does not have to be in nutrition) and successful completion of academic coursework at a CADE-approved/accredited institution with a minimum cumulative and didactic GPA of 3.0;
- Admission to and successful completion of a CADE-accredited dietetic internship
- A passing grade on the National Registration Examination for Dietitians.
Completion of the bachelor’s degree and didactic program (Step 1) may lead to, but does not guarantee, admission into a dietetic internship.
