A selection committee comprised of departmental faculty and area dietitians review all applications that meet the minimum requirements and are received on or before the deadline established by DICAS. Applications are evaluated in the areas of academic record (including overall GPA), Graduate Record Exam (GRE) scores, work and volunteer experience, letter of recommendations, and applicant’s personal statement. See the Requirements for Application to the DI Program for detailed information. Applications must meet the academic requirements of a Didactic Program in Dietetics accredited by The Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND).

- Applicant needs to make a Digital DI Application File through DICAS.
- Applicants must register online with D&D Digital Systems for selection of DI program priority and computer matching. This request should be made early to allow turnaround time to submit internship preferences to D&D Digital Systems. D&D Digital charged a $50 computer-matching fee.
- D&D Digital Systems will provide all applicants their personal matching results via posting on the D&D Digital Systems Web Site. D&D Digital Systems will provide all DI Directors the list of applicants matched to their program on match date. Applicants should contact D&D Digital Systems if matching results are not available to them via the Web site.
- Applicants who receive a computer match are responsible for contacting the DI Director and accepting or rejecting that match by email to the program director.
- As a participant in computer matching, it is expected that applicants who receive a match will adhere to the results of the match and accept the match. It is unacceptable to decline a match in order to pursue appointment to another supervised practice program.
- As a participant in the computer matching process, it is expected that applicants who do not receive a computer match will not contact any program with open positions until the allowed D&D date. This will allow the programs time to confirm acceptance from their matched applicants and determine the process they will use to fill open positions. In addition, please do not ask your Didactic Program Director to inquire about or contact programs with open positions prior to the allowed date.
