If You Already Hold a Degree

If You Already Hold a Degree

  • This page is for those who already have a degree in something other than nutrition and are interested in our degree program or becoming a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN). If you are a CSULB DPD alumni, visit the DPD Alumni page. 
  • Unfortunately, at this time CSULB only allows first-time bachelor's degree students. This means students who already have a non-nutrition degree cannot complete the course requirements to become a registered dietitian nutritionist at CSULB (even if the previous degree was health-related).
  • If you have an international undergraduate or graduate-level degree in nutrition, dietetics, or nutrition science, please visit Foreign Degree Evaluation below.
