Coordinated Programs in Dietetics

Listed below are the Coordinated Programs in Dietetics (CP). After each program's address is the accreditation status granted by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) and the date the program’s accreditation term ends. View accreditation status definitions.

Currently all the CPs must provide the required dietetics coursework and at least 1200 hours of supervised practice within an academic program leading to a bachelor's or graduate degree. Graduates of Coordinated Programs who are verified by the program director are eligible to write the CDR registration examination for dietitians. View Future Education Model Graduate programs.
