In addition to the preferences for admission to our graduate programs, Ph.D./DI applicants must have completed the required dietetics coursework from an ACEND-accredited Didactic Program before entering our Ph.D./DI program (mandatory requirement)
If you do not meet our admission criteria, then consider applying to our undergraduate program or enroll as a post-Baccalaureate student (contact: Dr. Rob Pazdro, firstname.lastname@example.org, http://www.admissions.uga.edu/).
