Pre-Nutrition/Dietetics, Associate in Science

Curriculum Code: SCI.NTR.AS (U230A30)

(Total Program Credits: 60)

Students interested in being a nutritionist or dietician must complete a bachelor's degree in nutrition or dietetics within a CADE-accredited supervised practice program and must successfully pass the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR) examination. Students can take this associate degree and then transfer to a university to complete their degree in dietetics or nutrition.

Students should note that four-year colleges and universities vary in specific course and transfer requirements. Therefore, it is important that in selecting Triton courses, students should consult a Triton counselor, as well as the catalog and/or admissions advisor at the senior institution to which transfer is intended.
