MS/RD Semester Schedule

This program is an intensive full-time program that requires a combination of didactic coursework and supervised experiential learning in most of the semesters. Therefore, vacations should be scheduled during the breaks in the program. Due to scheduling and availability of preceptors, it may be necessary for some students to complete supervised experiential learning hours during winter break or spring break.

Leaves of Absence are available upon discussion with the Program Director, depending on the circumstances for the leave of absence, specific forms will be completed by the student. For more information, please visit Leave of Absence Policies.
