Nutrition & Dietetics

Program Completion

You will have satisfactorily completed the dietetic internship when you have successfully completed all the internship courses and all Graduate School requirements. 

Interns are strongly advised to work closely with their academic advisor regarding their graduate course schedule to be sure that sufficient course work is being taken each semester for simultaneous completion of both the M.S. degree program and the dietetic internship program. You will receive the official "Verification Statement of Dietetic Internship Completion" only when all requirements of the M.S. degree program in Nutrition and Dietetics have been satisfied. 

Upon completion of both the M.S. and DI programs, the official verification statement will be given to you, and your name will be submitted to the Commission of Dietetic Registration. At this time you will be eligible to sit for the RD exam and apply for licensure in the State of Illinois, if applicable.
