The first two years of the dietetic curriculum for both the Didactic Program in Dietetics (DPD) and the
Coordinated Program (CP) are identical. Both programs meet the DPD requirements of the Commission on
Accreditation of Dietetic Education entry level dietitians. To be eligible for active membership in the
American Dietetic Association (ADA) and subsequent registration, graduates of the Didactic Program in
Dietetics are required to complete a dietetic internship following completion of their course work at the
University of Akron.

The CP includes over 900 hours of pre-professional practice within the final two years of study, during which
students gain knowledge as well as clinical experience in three main areas: food service administration,
medical nutrition therapy, and community nutrition. CP graduates are eligible for active membership and may
take the national registration examination immediately following graduation. State licensure requirements
must also be satisfied prior to practice in Ohio. Information about limited permits and licensure are provided
during the program.

ADVISING
Students may transfer directly into the Didactic Program in Dietetics upon admission to the College of Fine
and Applied Arts, and be referred to an academic advisor by calling (330) 972-7721. Students should
schedule an advisement conference at least once a year. Faculty are available for conferences by
appointment only. Courses may be waived or substituted only by special permission of the School Director,
Academic Advisor, and the College Dean. All approved changes must be in writing.

VERIFICATION STATEMENTS
The DPD and the CPD are accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Dietetics Education (CADE).
The student's Academic Program Requirements include courses which meet the national program
requirements. Upon graduation, official endorsements are signed by the DPD director or the CP director,
indicating satisfactory completion of the program requirements. In order for Didactic Program students to
earn a Verification Statement, all coursework must be passed. Coordinated Program students must obtain a
grade of "C" (2.0) or better in the following courses (unless waived): 3100:130, 200-201,202-203;
3150:110,111,112,113; 3750:100; 6500:480, 341; 7400:133, 250, 310, 315, 320, 328, 329, 400, 403, 413, 414,
424, 426, 428, 429, 443, 480, 481, 482, 483, 485, 486, 487.
 Please note: Recency of education requirements may need to be satisfied.

CP APPLICATIONS
Information regarding official application to CP is available in course 7400:147 Orientation to Professional
Studies. Applications are available in 215 Schrank Hall South. Students applying to CP should have a
minimum GPA of 2.5, a 3.0 science GPA, and be prepared for heavy time commitment. Students accepted to

necessary to meet the foundation knowledge and skills for dietetics. Medical insurance, proof of

recommended sequence, graduation may be delayed.

SCHOLARSHIPS

the American Dietetic Association) throughout the school year. Information regarding scholarships is posted
on the dietetics bulletin board in Schrank Hall South. Deadlines for applications will vary; it is the student's
responsibility to: 1) request application forms, 2) request letters of recommendation from the faculty if
required, forms are generally available at the front desk, and 3) mail all materials to be received before the
posted deadline dates. ROTC and Air Force Scholarships are also available.
CAREER PLACEMENT OFFICE

opportunities and employer literature are also available in 215 Schrank Hall South.

STUDENT DIETETIC ASSOCIATION (SDA)
The University of Akron Student Dietetic Association is open to all interested undergraduate and graduate
students at the University. Its purpose is to stimulate interest in the dietetic profession, orient members to the
American Dietetic Association, and organize activities to involve members in programs for the public to help
promote nutrition education. Contact the faculty advisor (972-7721), watch the Schrank bulletin board for
meeting notices, and/or talk to one of the student officers for more information. New officers are elected
yearly, and names are posted on the dietetics bulletin board.

STUDENT REPRESENTATIVES TO FACULTY MEETINGS
Junior and senior representatives may be elected from the SDA to attend dietetic faculty meetings. Concerns of
the students should be submitted in writing to a faculty member one week in advance. Response to concerns
