Because ADA requirements are subject to change, students who wish to become members of the ADA or registered dietitians should consult with the DPD program director in the department to determine minimum academic requirements. For the purpose of ADA verification all required courses for the degree must be completed with a grade of C or better.

Prospective health and nutrition sciences majors should consult a department counselor before choosing a program of study leading to a B.S. degree.
