- Application Process and Form for the Didactic Program in Dietetics - To ensure that graduates are best prepared for successful application to dietetic internships, the BS Dietetics degree program at UNC uses an application process separate from the University application. The application to the BS Dietetics program should be submitted the semester prior to the junior year; however, this may be different for new transfer students. Students who wish to apply must meet with their academic advisor prior to application. Students may declare the Dietetics major upon entrance to the University; however, they will not be considered accepted into the Program and eligible to earn a degree in Dietetics until they have applied to the Program and been accepted. The minimum criteria for admission are an overall GPA of 2.8 or greater, completion of FND 245 (or FND 250 with a grade of A or B), and completion of BIO 110 and CHEM 111 with grades of C- or better.
