Those courses denoted with an * are not required of applicants who have a baccalaureate degree or will have one prior to entrance into the professional program and are pursuing the certificate program.

All science courses taken require a lab component.

Medical Dietietics requires a overall GPA of 2.5, and prerequisite courses must be completed by the end of Summer semester prior to enrollment.

This evaluation is valid for the current application cycle only. Evaluated courses and the transferability of these courses can change, at any time, due to course content and re-evaluation.
