Admission to the NMSU Dietetic Internship requires concurrent admission to the NMSU Graduate School.

Applicants must complete three different online application forms:

  2. The Internship matching: D&D Digital
  3. The NMSU Graduate School: Graduate School

Candidates applying to the NMSU Dietetic Internship program are required to have an overall minimum GPA of 3.0 or higher. The program reserves half of the 12 full-time slots to New Mexico residents.

Once accepted and before beginning the NMSU Dietetic Internship, all students must provide to the Dietetic Internship Director the following: Two official transcripts showing completion of at least a bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university and a signed verification statement from an ACEND-accredited Didactic Program in Dietetics.

In addition to the admission requirements for the DICAS application, newly matched students must submit proof of GRE score (waived during the pandemic) to the NMSU Graduate School before beginning the NMSU Dietetic Internship. For more information, please visit Applicant Checklist.
