Most practicum sites are located along the I-35 corridor between Round Rock and San Antonio. Interns may drive 12,000 miles or more over the course of the internship, and should be prepared for the costs associated with that travel and with the maintenance of reliable transportation.
Students enrolled in the dietetic internship are non-degree seeking students and, as such, are not eligible for federal financial aid.
Students who complete the dietetic internship in combination with the master of science in human nutrition may be eligible for federal financial aid and graduate research or teaching assistantships.
