Freshmen, Transfer, and Second-Degree Students

If you are not currently enrolled as a student at Fontbonne, your first step will be to apply for undergraduate admission to the university. This includes applicants who have already earned a degree in another field outside of dietetics. Any previous college coursework you have completed will be reviewed for transferability and applied to our curriculum if approved.  

If you have earned, or are currently in the process of earning, DPD verification through an ACEND accredited didactic program in dietetics, please see the information for DPD Graduates.  

You may review the full curriculum guide for the CP (B.S. + M.A.) here.  

Your application to the coordinated program will occur through an internal process once you have completed the program prerequisites. Your academic advisor will work closely with you to determine this timeline.  

Our general criteria for admission to the CP are: 

  • Completion of at least 60 credit hours (includes transfer coursework) 
  • Completion of all required prerequisite courses with a C- or better (see curriculum guide)* 
  • 3.25 cumulative GPA for all coursework completed at Fontbonne 

*We will consider applications from students who will have completed at least 75% (36 credits) of prerequisite courses by the semester they plan to begin the CP
