    Note: 

    Dietetics Major retention policy: Students will be reviewed and may be dismissed from the dietetics major if they receive two initial grades below a B- in courses required in the major or related work. They may also be dismissed from the major at the end of their sophomore year (second semester to transfer students) and successive semesters if they do not have an overall 3.0 GPA.

    The Dietetics Program is a Didactic Program which prepares students to meet the educational requirements of the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics Education. (ACEND). In addition, an ACEND accredited supervised practice experience and passing a registration examination are required to become a registered dietitian. Supervised practice experiences are nationally competitive and completing and undergraduate degree does not guarantee that a student will receive a placement. After graduation, supervised practice programs require written verification of the student’s completion of the academic requirements. Upon student request, Oneonta issues verification statements to all students who graduated with a B.S in Dietetics. Students should obtain current policies from the program director. Students will be charged a fee if verification is requested two months or more beyond graduation.

    Effective January 1, 2024, a minimum of a master’s degree will be required to take the registration examination by the Commission on Dietetics Registration. ACEND can be contacted at 1800 8770 1600 ext. 5400 or by writing the Commission at 120 South Riverside Plaza, Suite 2190, Chicago IL 60606-699
