Program Licensure Outcomes The Bachelor of Science in Dietetics & Nutrition with Dietetics Emphasis at The University of Mississippi is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND). Upon graduation, students are eligible for two career paths in dietetics:

1.     Students may take the exam to become a Nutrition and Dietetic Technician, Registered, administered by the Commission for Dietetic Registration (CDR).

2.     Students may apply to an ACEND-accredited Dietetic Internship or Coordinated Program in order to complete the requirements to take the exam for Registered Dietitian Nutritionists, administered by the Commission for Dietetic Registration (CDR).


Individuals must meet state regulations, determined by occupational settings, for the state in which they wish to practice.   Compliance with state regulatory requirements is mandatory, and the only avenue towards legal practice.

Program Regulated by every state licensure / certification board There is no licensure for Nutrition and Dietetic Technicians, Registered in the State of Mississippi and therefore the program does not meet the educational requirements.

We have not determined if the program curriculum meets the educational requirements for licensure or certification in the other US states, territories or the District of Columbia.
