NOTE:
INFORMATION ABOUT RETENTION IN THE MAJOR: 

Students are required to: 

  1. Earn a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher by third semester (sophomore year) or second semester for transfer students. If the 3.00 is not earned, students are permitted one more semester to earn a 3.00.  Failure to earn a 3.00 cum GPA will result in removal from the major.
  2. Earn a minimum grade of "B-" in all, but two, major and major-related work courses. With program director approval, students may have up to 2 grades in the C- to C+ range when the cumulative GPA is 3.0 or above. 

In addition, a student may repeat no more than three required courses in the major. 

Students who have been dismissed from the major may appeal to the Dietetics Committee for re-entry to the major based upon extenuating circumstances or a rectified GPA.  Re-entry to the major is not guaranteed.”

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 an 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 graduate 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 1-800-877-1600 ext. 5400 or by writing the Commission at 120 South Riverside Plaza, Suite 2190, Chicago IL 60606-6995.
