Step 1

All applicants applying for remote/distance track need to find 4 preceptors for each of the following rotations.

NOTE: Community Concentration does not need an additional preceptor because you will return to Community Site 1 or 2. (You will need to make sure that the preceptor knows that you will be coming twice and confirm the dates.)

Resources to help you secure site/preceptors

Step 2

After you have found your preceptors, preceptors will need to fill out the Online Preceptor Commitment Form which will require them to submit a resume. Interns and Preceptors need to also review the appropriate rotation description outlining the required experiences.

If the preceptor does not have a resume, a preceptor can fill out the Preceptor Education Form  and can submit this form in lieu of their resume.

APPLICANTS NOTE: Applications will not be reviewed if the online preceptor commitment form is not completed and submitted. 

Step 3

Complete the DICAS Application (contact your DPD director if you have not received the web site link as this is updated yearly).


For the Cedar Crest College Dietetic Internship, you must submit 3 references:

NOTE: Personal references will not be accepted. Faculty references must come from faculty who worked with you as an instructor. For example, if you worked with a faculty member as a TA in his/her class but never took a class with that instructor, the faculty member could write a work reference for you, but should not submit a faculty reference. The faculty references must have taught you in class so they are able to address your skills as a student.

Step 4

Complete the Cedar Crest College DI Student Online Application Form
Interns will also need to submit a $60 application fee online

NOTE: If you apply to both tracks, only one $60 fee will be collected. The $60 application fee is waived for all current Cedar Crest College students. All materials submitted as part of the application process will be considered the property of Cedar Crest College, and will not be returned.

Step 5

Interview Process

Candidates being considered for acceptance will be contacted for a phone interview in March.
