The Nutrition Program prepares students for careers in nutrition, food service systems management, and related areas. This is a didactic Program in Dietetics (DPD), which means that it is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) and meets the academic requirements for registered dietitian status. To take the registration exam, attainment of the college degree must be followed by supervised professional experience obtainable through ACEND-approved or accredited programs such as a dietetic internship. Students may apply for internship admission in the senior year.

The mission of the Nutrition Program at SUNY Plattsburgh is to graduate students who are successfully prepared to enter a dietetic internship, graduate program, or employment in community, clinical or food service settings or to take the registered diet technician exam.

Practicum and internship candidates are expected to follow the external and professional practicum guidelines appropriate to their discipline. (Please refer to specific department/program student/internship manual for details.)
