KADDI has a memorandum of understanding with the University of Central Arkansas (UCA) for interns to earn nine credit hours toward the Master of Science in Nutrition by fulfilling supervised practice
competencies through Keith & Associates Distance Dietetic Internship. Students are not required to enroll in other courses during the internship period and the dietetic internship director assigns the grade for the nine hours delivered by supervised practice.
The remaining 21 (thesis track) or 27 (non-thesis track) credits are completed online and taught by other UCA faculty.
Interns seeking the M.S. degree must apply to the university and be admitted
to the graduate college. This is a separate application than that for the dietetic internship through Keith & Associates. The GRE exam is waived for KADDI interns. Students will pay tuition to both UCA and KADDI during the internship.
The UCA online nutrition MS program includes core course work in research and statistics, as well
as sports, geriatric, diabetes, and other nutrition specific classes. Financial aid is available and students admitted to the program are offered flat-rate
tuition of $325.00 per credit hour regardless of residency or location.
