Didactic Program in Dietetics Student Handbook
This handbook was developed to serve as a guide and resource for students planning on completing the Dietetic Concentration at Miami University. This document should be considered as a companion to the Miami University Student Publications and Policies.
The information, policies, and procedures included in this document are meant to be helpful and supportive. Students are expected to review and follow the policies in MUPIM regarding university-wide student conduct. This handbook is revised annually and each new edition fully replaces previously published versions. The most recent version of the handbook is posted on our Didactic Program in Dietetics Web Site and on the Canvas Organizational site for Dietetics. Access to the Canvas site content is granted once a student is accepted into Miami University and declares a Dietetic Concentration. A hard copy of this handbook is kept in the Dietetics Program Director’s office.
All students are encouraged to review the policies and procedures relating to the Kinesiology and Health Department including grade policies, example curriculum plans, requirements, student resources, faculty information, and program costs.
This handbook includes the Miami University dietetic mission, goals, and objectives as submitted to the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) as a part of the continuing accreditation requirements.
This handbook does not replace the Miami University Student Handbook. The purpose of this handbook is to give Dietetic Students information about resources available to the students. It is important to visit with your academic advisor often to receive the answers to questions about your degree.
