Supervised Practice Requirements

Upon successful completion of the Bachelor of Science and the didactic program in dietetics requirements outlined in the student handbook (program GPA of 3.0/4.0), students will receive a verification statement from the program director. This verification statement is required for eligibility to apply to accredited supervised practice programs (dietetic internships).

Acceptance into these programs is very competitive. Students should strive to maintain a high grade point average, volunteer at nutrition-related activities and gain paid work experience.

All Dietitians and Nutritionists practicing in the State of Louisiana must be licensed by the Louisiana Board of Examiners in Dietetics and Nutrition. See for more information.
