ADDITION OF AN ADMISSION POLICY TO THE
COORDINATED PROGRAM IN DIETETICS
IN THE COLLEGE OF NATURAL SCIENCES CHAPTER OF
THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 2006-2008



On page 416, under the heading ADMISSION AND REGISTRATION before the ADMISSION TO THE TEXTILES AND APPAREL PROGRAM section in the College of Natural Sciences chapter of The Undergraduate Catalog, 2004-2006, make the following changes:


ADMISSION TO THE COORDINATED PROGRAM IN DIETETICS

Freshman and transfer applicants to the University who plan to enter the Coordinated Program in Dietetics should apply for admission to the entry major in nutrition. When they have met the requirements described below, students may apply for admission to the Coordinated Program in Dietetics (CPD).

Prior to applying for admission to the CPD, students must complete at least sixty semester hours of the coursework, required for the Bachelor of Science in Nutrition, option I (CPD) including Biology 311C and 416K; Chemistry 301, 302, 204, and 310M; and Nutrition 307, 107L, 311, 111L, and 315. A list of other recommended courses is available from the Department of Human Ecology. Students must also have a grade point average of at least 2.70 in coursework taken in residence at the University. Students should consult advisers in the Department of Human Ecology for information about the application process and deadlines. Application materials are available from the department.



The number of qualified students who want to enroll in the CPD may exceed the number who can be adequately instructed by the faculty and accommodated within available facilities. Admission decisions are based on the student’s grade point average in the biology, chemistry, and nutrition courses listed above, his or her University grade point average, and other factors. These factors may include, but are not limited to, the difficulty of the student’s previous coursework, work or volunteer experience, leadership, commitment to the profession of dietetics, and successful completion of the interview process. Students whose applications are denied may reapply.


RATIONALE:Move CPD admission information from Option I to the section of the catalog where other limited enrollment programs in the college are described. Adopt language similar to the other programs.
