Students who have completed a college Nutrition course of two or more credits (e.g. HUN 1201) that did not include Diet Therapy may request permission in the Health Sciences Advising Office (email HealthScienceApplications@valenciacollege.edu) to complete the one-credit HUN 2015 Diet Therapy for Health Care Professionals, which may be in progress at the time of program application, but must be completed with a minimum grade of C (or minimum grade needed to maintain 3.0 general education prerequisite GPA) by the program start date. If taken, HUN 2015 and the initial Nutrition course will combine to substitute for HUN 2202 unless the student has already attempted the required HUN2202 course. Therefore, if a student has HUN2202 on his/her record, then HUN2015 with the initial nutrition course is not an option to meet program entry requirements. The grade for each prerequisite must be posted to your Valencia transcript (prior to application).

For those who are in progress with HUN2015 at another college must provide proof of enrollment in the course (name and institution must be visible) by submitting a copy of course schedule.

You can email documentation to: Healthscienceapplications@valenciacollege.edu.
