After securing facilities & preceptors, preceptors must complete the Preceptor Commitment Form and email it back to you.
Please make sure the preceptors have read the rotation requirements before filing out the form.

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.
Personal Statement Criteria:
Interns will also need to submit a $60 application fee online.
NOTE: Applicants applying to both tracks, only pay one $60 application. 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.
Only candidates being considered for acceptance will be invited for a web conference interview in March.
