Applying to this Dietetics Program


This Online Program Begins Each Summer

The Distance Dietetics Program (DDP), which includes the BS and DPD-only options, is offered by the UNC Dietetics and Nutrition Department through UNC Extended Campus. A group of admitted students who meet program requirements, including prerequisite coursework, begin the program each Summer term.

Application Deadline

Applications are accepted year-round for the online program for each Summer term start. We encourage you to apply as early as possible for the upcoming Summer term, because spots are limited in this online program.

Please note: The summer start for 2022 is full. Please consider the on-campus program in Greeley. We will begin reviewing DDP applications for the summer 2023 start in August 2022.
