Purpose: Prepares students for transfer to four-year institutions offering Bachelor of Science degrees in various professional disciplines.
Following the completion of this two year transfer option, students would be ready to enroll in an accredited dietetics program at a four-year institution. Once the bachelor’s degree in dietetics is obtained, students would need to apply for and complete an internship experience at an accredited facility. This enables the student to take the registration exam for dietitians, thus earning the credential of “registered dietitian.”

Planning Tool: Two-Year Sequence of Courses
AACC faculty developed the following sequence of courses to encourage greater success in each student’s program of study. This sequence incorporates all of the student’s admissions requirements for this degree and provides the student with essential notes to guide their success. It is recommended that students view and save this as they plan courses for this degree.
