Oregon State University offers an Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND) Accredited Didactic Program in Dietetics (DPD) that includes all of the required education to result in an internship eligible student.
The OSU Dietetics option is a challenging science based curriculum.
Students who earn grades below a B in these courses are advised to consider a different academic program due to the high competition for dietetic internships.
The average GPA for those accepted into a Dietetic Internship following their undergraduate studies is a 3.4 or higher. Students who do not wish to pursue a dietetic internship may be interested in testing for the DTR, Dietetic Technician Registered.
The Dietetics option at OSU provides the coursework and preparation to enter a supervised dietetic internship, pass the RegisteredDietitian exam, and become a leader in the profession. Graduates from OSU's program consistently exceed the national average for placement into accredited dietetic internships and for passing the RD exam the first time.
