MS/DI - How to Apply

Applicants must apply through both the DICAS match and the ISU graduate school.

The ISU MS/DI program has eight seats in Pocatello, two seats in Twin Falls, and eight seats in Meridian.  We participate in the spring match and the Twin Falls seats are included with Pocatello in D&D Digital for a total of 10 seats available.  Meridian's eight seats are matched separately in D&D Digital.  Applicants can apply to Pocatello/Twin Falls only, Meridian only, or both.

The Graduate School application is separate from the DICAS application and an offer of admission into the Graduate School does not indicate a guaranteed match to the internship.   Matched students will indicate acceptance of admission to the graduate program after match day in April.

New students are admitted to the MS/Dietetic Internship
during the fall semester

Admission Requirements

 Program eligibility and admission requirements must be met prior to beginning the MS/Dietetic Internship:

  • A minimum of a Baccalaureate degree in nutrition/dietetics or related field from an U.S. regionally accredited university or college or foreign equivalent as determined by a recognized credentialing agency.
  • A Verification Statement/Declaration of Intent from an ACEND® accredited Didactic Program in Dietetics.
  • A minimum of a DPD 3.0 GPA.
  • Dietetics work and/or volunteer experience.  Work experience is not mandatory, however, it significantly strengthens your application.
