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 a list of prerequisite courses.

For CMP program specific questions or for transcript review/evaluations, please contact Jean Zancanella, Academic Advisor. Equivalent courses from accredited colleges and universities are accepted. Please have your course description(s) from your Institution available.
