The Nutrition Program uses a “rolling admissions” process where applications are reviewed and decisions are made at regular intervals during the admissions cycle until the class is filled. For maximum consideration, applicants should submit all application materials early in the cycle. To initiate the application process, you must submit all of the following items to the Office of CHP Admissions.
Early application is strongly encouraged. Files must be received and completed at least 1 month prior to the start of the requested enrollment term. Fall is the Program’s preferred start term.
Deadlines for this season’s academic terms are:
SPRING January 15, 2014
SUMMER April 15, 2014
FALL July 1, 2014
WINTER October 1, 2014
At the close of the application you will be required to submit a $50.00 payment through PayPal.
Obtain official transcripts signed and sealed by the registrar of each college or university you have attended; this includes community or junior colleges where coursework may have been transferred to a 4-year university. Only official transcripts submitted in signed and sealed envelopes from the issuing institution will be accepted.
Applicants that are currently enrolled or plan on enrolling in courses prior to matriculation, if accepted, will need to complete the Current/Planned Coursework Form
Applicants who have completed coursework at a college or university outside of the U.S. must submit an official, course-by-course evaluation with degree equivalency for this work. This must be mailed directly to RFUMS from one of the following services:
World Education Services (WES)
Education Credential Evaluators (ECE)
Two letters of recommendation are required from professionals and/or academicians who know you well (i.e. pre-health advisors/committees, professors, or supervisors). Letters of recommendation must be signed, placed in a sealed envelope, and have that person’s signature across the seal of the envelope. A recommendation form
has been provided for you; however, if the recommender chooses not to utilize our form, he/she must use the appropriate letterhead stationary and envelope of the agency or university for which he/she works or teaches.
Standard Test Scores
TOEFL Scores – An official score report from the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is required of any applicant who does not hold US citizenship or permanent residency. This test must have been taken within the last two years and scores must be sent directly from the Educational Testing Service (www.toefl.org). This requirement may be waived at the University’s discretion for the following:
• Applicants who have been full-time students in a United States college or university for at least two consecutive years
• Applicants from countries in which English is the primary language
Include a description of the following:
• Educational History (colleges attended and degrees earned)
• List all employment positions for the preceding five years or since the date of leaving secondary school; include the name of the employer, nature of the work, hours per week, and dates employed.
