Coordinated Program Completion

A Verification Statement will be provided to the student when he/she has successfully completed the program.  This statement signifies program completion and are issued to all students who have satisfactorily met the requirements of the Coordinated Program and have at least a Bachelor's degree.  These requirements include:

 

  • Students must demonstrate a “C” (73 or higher) or better mastery in Dietetics coursework during the program’s two academic years and externship
  • Meet a minimum of ‘beginner or competent’ in all clinical, community/counseling, food service, and research rotations during the final spring semester and Externship.  It is expected that the student will be competent in most areas as he/she progresses through supervised practice.  Competent is defined as: demonstrates sound knowledge and effective use of entry level skills; seeks assistance after investigating potential solutions.
  • Formal documented evaluations of performance will be reviewed with the student at the completion of rotations. These evaluations become a part of the permanent student file.
  • The Externship must be completed prior to a verification statement being issued.
  • Students must complete the program within 150% of the of the time (within 3 years of program commencement)

The Verification Statement indicates that the student has met program requirements and is eligible to sit for the dietetics registration examination.

The Undergraduate student normally completes baccalaureate requirements in May and immediately completes the 6-week 6-credit externship.  The Verification statement is issued after the BS and Externship are successfully completed.

The Post-Baccalaureate student may complete the MS in Health Promotion Science in May but may need additional time to complete courses and the project/practicum. Progress in the program is discussed with the student's graduate advisor and CP Program Director. The post-baccalaureate student may receive the verification statement if all competencies, time, and rotations are successfully completed.  The Registration Examination for Dietetics may be taken after the Verification Statement is received.
