Comprehensive Exam

All graduate students in the MS-DP Track are required to take a Comprehensive Exam, given in the last semester of the program, to demonstrate understanding of the course materials. The exam will serve as the final exam for the Practicum course. The exam is multiple-choice, similar in style to the ADA national registration exam for dietitians. In order to obtain a Verification Statement indicating completion of the DP academic coursework, a student must score at least 75% on the comprehensive exam and maintain good standing (3.0 GPA) in the program. If a student scores < 75%, s/he will be permitted to retake the exam.

However, if students must maintain full-time status for financial aid, they may take additional courses at their discretion.
