MSND: Nutrition Education Application

All students applying for a MSND degree (either the Nutrition Education or Dietetic Internship option) will need to complete these components. The application is two-fold: 1. request admission into the Graduate School at EIU, and 2. admission into the MSND program.  Both of these processes will be completed within the MyEIU Admission portal. When applying to the MSND program, you can select the online or on campus Nutrition and Dietetics Option: Nutrition Education Option as your preferred program.  The required application components include the payment of a non-refundable $30 application fee to the Graduate School; your personal statement stating why you are a strong candidate for the MSND: NE program; three letters of recommendation; resume; and transcripts. These application components are clarified in the MyEIU Admission portal.

The Fine Print

  • Transcripts: Prospective graduate students who completed their undergraduate program at EIU, do NOT need to include transcripts in their application for Graduate School at EIU. Those students with transcripts from other universities need to have those transcripts mailed directly to the Graduate School, 600 Lincoln Avenue, Charleston, IL 61920.
  • Application Due Dates: Applications are accepted year-round; however, admission decisions are made twice annually, October (September 25 application deadline) and March (February 15 application deadline).

International Students - In addition to the admission requirements stated above, please visit the Office of International Students and Scholars website for additional guidance.

Note: If you are a prospective student who plans to start the program in August and is interested in a MSND graduate assistantship, please click here for further information about submitting the MSND GA application.
