- Make up any time missed in excess of designated personal days
- Demonstrate entry-level competence in the performance of clinical staff relief near the end of the internship
- Complete all requirements of the dietetic internship program within 1.25 years of the enrollment date
If the above criteria is not met at any time during the program, the student cannot graduate, and therefore, will lose eligibility for any further financial aid, if applicable.
