A new guaranteed transfer path has been established between Delta College and Central Michigan University’s (CMU) Nutrition and Dietetics program to help prospective Registered Dietitian Nutritionists (RDNs) achieve their dreams The Delta Way.

Registered Dietitian Nutritionists and Dietetic Programs

RDNs are food and nutrition experts who help people live healthier and more active lifestyles through the transformative power of food and nutrition.

At CMU, there are two pathways toward becoming an RDN: The traditional path for a bachelor’s degree in CMU’s Didactic Program in Dietetics (DPD), master’s in any field then a Dietetic Internship (DI) or through the Future Education Model (FEM) — designed for individuals who already hold a bachelor’s degree in a field other than dietetics. Students who start at Delta’s Dietetics program, would transfer into CMU’s traditional path.

This partnership ensures each student’s associate’s degree credits, from Delta’s pre-dietetics program, easily transfer to continue working toward their bachelor’s and master’s degrees at CMU. While at Delta, students will receive one-on-one academic advising to map out a customizable transfer path toward becoming qualified nutritional professionals, small class sizes and hands-on learning.
