Our eligibility application was accepted by ACEND® awarding UNE candidacy approval. 

To qualify for admission to a future RDN focus area, students must complete 3 of the prerequisite courses, offered at UNE. Or provide a verification statement indicating completion of a U.S. Didactic Program in Dietetics (DPD).
