MISSION
The NYU DPD strives to educate students on the role of food, nutrition, and health in society. Integrating
knowledge and research into coursework, the program provides students with an understanding of basic
sciences, and theoretical and applied aspects of nutrition and dietetics to facilitate preparation of students
for supervised practice leading to eligibility for the CDR credentialing exam to become a registered diet.
PROGRAM OVERVIEW
The NYU Didactic Program in Dietetics consists of a series of classes that must be completed by students
seeking eligibility to apply for an ADA accredited Dietetic Internship and take the Commission of Dietetic
Registration (CDR) registration examination, needed to obtain the RD credential.
The program prepares students to:
1. Assess the nutritional status of individuals and population groups.
2. Educate individuals and the public on food choices that will optimize health and prevent disease.
3. Apply nutrition care process to the treatment of diet-related disease conditions.
4. Manage human, financial, and physical resources to improve the nutritional care of individuals
and population groups.
5. Apply research methods and scientific evidence to the examination of current problems in food,
nutrition and health.

HOW TO BECOME A REGISTERED DIETITIAN/NUTRITIONIST (RDN)
Completion of the Didactic Program in Dietetics (DPD) is one of the requirements for Dietetic Registration.
Additional requirements include:
A bachelor's degree from an accredited institution.
A DPD Verification Statement.
An accredited Dietetic Internship and Verification of Completion.
A passing score on the Commission of Dietetic Registration (CDR) registration examination.
TAKING DPD COURSES AT OTHER INSTITUTIONS
Students may take DPD courses outside of NYU provided that the course(s) are approved by an
Department advisor, and that the course(s) meet the following criteria:
Courses from regionally accredited two-year colleges will be considered for approval if the school
has a ACEND-accredited DTR program.
Courses from two-year colleges that do not have a ACEND-accredited DTR program will not be
accepted. The only exception: Chemistry 121 and 122 at the Borough of Manhattan Community
College will be accepted to meet the NYU DPD's requirements for CHEM-UA 120 (Introduction to
Modern Chemistry) and CHEM-UA 210 (Principles of Organic Chemistry).
Courses from regionally accredited four-year colleges will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
DPD courses with graduate credit at other institutions will not count as graduate credits at NYU.
Students requesting to transfer courses/credits from another institution should gather information about
the course for evaluation by an academic advisor. Information should include course descriptions, syllabi,
titles of textbooks used, or any other materials that would allow the advisor to assess if this replacement
course covers the same content and upholds the same level of instruction as the one taught at NYU.
Students transferring to NYU from other DPD programs must also provide an official transcript from each
college attended. For those already enrolled in the NYU DPD program, all courses must be pre-approved
by your advisor. The advisor will make every effort to make a decision in sufficient time to allow the
student to plan course schedule before the course registration period begins for the next semester.
PLEASE NOTE: To receive a DPD Verification Statement or Declaration of Intent from NYU, students
must take at least 29 credits at NYU and get pre-approval for all DPD courses taken outside NYU.
VERIFICATION STATEMENT
Once you have completed the NYU DPD courses and have acquired a minimum of a baccalaureate
degree, you will be issued a Verification Statement. A "Verification Statement" is a confirmation that you
have completed the coursework needed for Dietetic Registration, allowing you to submit your application
for an accredited Dietetic Internship (DI). A "Declaration of Intent" states that you have yet to finish, but
that you are currently enrolled in and will finish the mandatory courses before you begin your DI. Students
should request a Verification Statement or Declaration of Intent in their final semester of study, as they
prepare their applications for DI programs. The forms can be picked up in the Department office. If you
have taken any DPD classes outside of NYU, official transcripts from each of those institutions should be
submitted. Once your application is approved, you will receive five copies of the statement and another
copy will be kept in your student file.
DIETETIC INTERNSHIP
Applicants to NYU's Dietetic Internship must use the online centralized internship application found on the
Dietetic Internship Centralized Application System (DICAS) website: . For detailed
information on the NYU Dietetic Internship see steinhardt.nyu.edu/nutrition/internships/dietetic, and
on the James J. Peters/Bronx Veterans Affairs Medical Center Dietetic Internship see
dieteticinternship.bronx/index.asp.

Students who complete the DPD also have the option to become Registered Dietetic Technicians. For

Undergraduate students are expected to maintain a GPA of 2.0, and graduate students are expected to
maintain a GPA of 3.0 to remain in satisfactory academic standing.
PASS/FAIL OPTION
Students at all levels have the option to take courses on a pass/fail basis, with the following guidelines:
A maximum of 25% of courses may be taken pass/fail for an academic degree.
No graduate level Department course may be taken pass/fail.
The department recommends all DPD and specialization courses be taken for a grade.
INCOMPLETE GRADES
Incomplete grades can be requested by matriculated students only under exceptional circumstances at
the discretion of the instructor after the ninth week of the term with 50% of the coursework complete.
Obtain an Incomplete Grade Form and necessary signatures from the department. The instructor must
sign the form and indicate the remaining assignments and the dates by which they must be completed, no
later than the last day of classes in the following term. If the outstanding assignments remain incomplete
beyond the completion date the incomplete grade becomes an F
ADVISEMENT / OFFICE HOURS
