Dear future applicants to the University of Utah graduation programs in Nutrition and Integrative Physiology (CMP, Master’s Program, and PhD Program),
We are going through an unprecedented crisis with COVID-19. Many of you have had interruptions to your daily life. We are aware and sensitive to these changes and hope that you and your families are safe during these difficult times.
Many undergraduate institutions, because of the transition to online learning, are allowing Pass/Fail or Credit/No-Credit grading systems for the Spring of 2020.
To accommodate these changes, anyone enrolled in Spring 2020 for a prerequisite for our programs is not required to earn a letter grade. Applicants will not be penalized for Pass/Fail or Credit/No-Credit marks on their transcripts in any classes taken Spring 2020. The Admissions Committees understand this change and will not hold it against individual applicants.
In turn, we are also closely monitoring the situation when it comes to our other criteria, including observation hours, shadowing experiences, community service, leadership ability, the GRE, etc. We will continue to work with our national and local partners including the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics and the Graduate Records Examination (GRE).
Thank you for your patience during these difficult times. We will post any future changes to our criteria on our website and social media accounts and, as possible, to local academic advisors.
