    Students are enrolled in the Dietetic Internship Program only (without additional MPH courses) and are registered for 6 credits per semester. Although the student is considered full-time by the Dietetic Internship Program, the student is considered part-time by the registrar for calculation of tuition.

    Dietetic Interns who require proof that they are enrolled in a full-time program can request a letter of full-time status from the Dietetic Internship Director.

    Students must pay tuition and fees in full at the time of registration. Without full payment students will not be considered registered and will not be admitted to class.


    Meals are the responsibility of interns. However, some meals may be provided by rotation sites.


    Students are responsible for their own transportation to and from assigned sites. Whenever possible, practice sites have been selected which are easily accessible by public transportation and are located in generally safe neighborhoods.
