COLLEGE OF APPLIED & NATURAL SCIENCES
Students transferring into the Nutrition and Dietetics curriculum from another major on campus or from another institution will be assigned an academic advisor, who will review academic transcripts and make a tentative recommendation about which courses already completed by the student will count toward the degree requirements. In many cases, students will have completed some of the courses as specified on the Nutrition and Dietetics curriculum sheet. In some cases, students will have completed similar courses or higher level courses. In such situations, the advisor and student will complete paperwork to request substitutions. Substitutions are not official until they have been approved by the Director of the School of Human Ecology, the Associate Dean for Undergraduate Studies and the Dean of the College of Applied and Natural Sciences.
Currently enrolled students who wish to complete course requirements at another institution (typically during the summer) should work with their advisor to obtain pre-approval of these courses. The pre-approval process requires signatures from the student, the advisor, the Director of the School of Human Ecology, the Associate Dean and the Dean of the College of Applied and Natural Sciences. In addition, the student must earn a grade of “C” or better in the transferred course. It is the student’s responsibility to submit an official transcript to the Office of the Registrar after completing transfer courses.
The DPD at Louisiana Tech University does not grant course credit for prior work experiences.
