Nutrition and Dietetics DPD Certificate

Program Description

The only undergraduate DPD program in the Seattle area, this Nutrition and Dietetics DPD Certificate allows students with an existing bachelor’s degree in any field to pursue a verification statement required for dietetic internships. The course of study requires students to complete requirements for the Didactic Program in Dietetics (i.e., DPD) and maintain a minimum overall GPA of 3.0 upon program completion to obtain the verification statement.

Along with the accredited curriculum, our courses offer opportunities for students to practice 21st-century skills, provide service to communities, and demonstrate critical thinking — all skills and attitudes reflected in our program learning outcomes.

Your previous academic work, if completed within the last seven years, will be considered for meeting DPD requirements. A transcript review by the DPD director will determine the courses that you must complete to fulfill requirements.

If you are completing the requirements for a second baccalaureate degree, you may be eligible for federal student financial aid; non-degree students are not eligible for financial aid.
