Prerequisites for Admission

Applicants should have a bachelor's degree in biochemistry, biology, dietetics, exercise science, food science, health education, hospitality/restaurant management, nutrition science, or other major related to their desired Area of Study.

Applicants should have specific prerequisite courses on their transcripts related to their desired Area of Study. Deficiencies in specific courses, as judged by the Graduate Admissions Committee, will be indicated on an applicant's admission letter and will thus be the basis for "provisional" acceptance. "Provisional" status will be changed to "full graduate standing" after the specified course(s) have been completed and a grade of B or higher is achieved.

Applicants not having a relevant bachelor's degree are welcome to apply, but should take prerequisite courses related to their desired area of study BEFORE applying.

Grade point average of 3.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale.

Preferred minimum GRE scores: 140 Verbal; 144 Quantitative; 3.0 Analytical (writing).

Required minimum TOEFL score (International students only):  550 paper; 79 internet; or 6.0 IELTS.
