Each student is assigned an academic advisor in the Nutrition and Dietetics Program. Advisors play an integral role in assisting students through their college years; they aid students in:

  • planning a schedule of required courses
  • providing information about scholarships, professional organizations, and job openings
  • making plans for future career endeavors
  • identifying and marketing their strengths
  • communicating pre-professional and professional expectations
  • nurturing professional growth and development

Students have the option to request a specific adviser and/or change advisers at any time. In order to request the change, talk to the Department of Health Chair, Sturzebecker Health Sciences Center, Room 207. Students should plan to meet with their advisor at least once each semester before the self scheduling period begins.

Undergraduate degree students are able to self-schedule on the web using the web portal. Students MUST see their advisor in order to gain access to schedule on the web portal.
