WHAT YOU NEED BEFORE YOU APPLY
Prior to the CMP, students must complete a bachelor's degree from a regionally-accredited university or college. The bachelor's degree major can be in any topic area and does not necessarily have to be in nutrition or another health field. As part of, or in addition to the bachelor's degree from a regionally-accredited university or college, students must complete specific prerequisite courses (listed below).
For questions about the CMP, or to request a transcript review, please contact:
Equivalent courses from accredited colleges and universities are accepted. Please have your course description(s) from your Institution available.
Do I need to complete all the prerequisites prior to applying for the program?
- No, but you will have to complete them by the time of matriculation (Fall semester).
- Note on your application your outstanding or in-progress prerequisites and your plan of completion (the semester you plan on completing Spring/Summer).
