Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Graduate Program

Introducing the Graduate Program (GP) in Applied Nutrition and Dietetics

The GP@CSULB will be a new 19-month full-time intensive ACEND-Accredited program that results in a Master’s Degree in Applied Nutrition and Dietetics and readiness to sit for the RDN exam. Anyone who has a minimum of a bachelor’s degree and has completed all prerequisites can apply. No verification statement is required. The GP will begin every year in spring (January) and end in August of the second year (19 months). This program will replace the CSULB Dietetic Internship, which is no longer accepting applicants.

More details coming in summer of 2024

At this time, we are not responding to email inquiries about the GP until we have official ACEND approval and can offer concrete details, as program information is subject to change. More details are expected to be released in July 2024, with a tentative plan of applications accepted in fall 2024 with an anticipated cohort starting in January 2025. This is all contingent on accreditation approval.
