Application Process for Dietetics Bachelor’s Degree

1. Review Admission Requirements

To qualify for admission as a pre-Dietetics student, the following requirements must be met: 

  • Students with fewer than 24 completed college credit hours must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 and meet the Kansas State University Office of Admissions requirements for new freshman.
  • Students with 24 or more completed college credit hours must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0.
  • At this time, K-State does not offer the following courses online:  BIOL 198 Principles of Biology, BIOL 341 Human Body I, and BIOL 342 Human Body II.  Students who have the opportunity to enroll in the equivalent of these classes prior to applying for admission will have an advantage in meeting the pre-requisite requirements for some courses.  Students applying for admission without these courses will be assisted by an academic advisor in locating the equivalents offered online at other institutions.
