Didactic Program in Dietetics

Admissions Information – Prospective Freshmen

This page is for anyone who is, or will soon be a high school graduate and have never attended a college or university since high school.  We offer a supportive and exciting program to prepare students to become experts in the field of nutrition (see Becoming a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist to see the journey our students take).

Did You Know? CSULB preferentially accepts applicants who graduated from priority high schools in Los Angeles and Orange Counties (e.g. Long Beach Unified, ABC Unified, Compton Unified, Downey Unified, Huntington Beach, etc). To see if your school applies, visit Local Admission Area Schools & District Map.

All admissions information can be found on the CSULB Admissions website- look for the "Freshmen" section. We are unable to answer any specific questions about admissions, applications, or CSULB requirements for since our office is not involved in any admissions decisions. However, we are always happy to answer questions about our program.

If you're trying to decide what school is the best fit, we recommend visiting: Why Choose CSULB to see if our program is a good match for you.
