Application process



This program is using the online centralized internship application, which can be found at the DICAS portal.

DICAS will be available after Dec. 8, 2013 for the Spring 2014 Match. The online application must be completed for our program by 11:59 p.m. Central Time on Feb. 16, 2014. The fee to use DICAS is $40 for the first application submitted and $20 for each additional application.

Official transcripts from all colleges and universities attended should be sent to: DICAS Transcript Dept. PO Box 9118, Watertown, MA 02472

When completing the application form, applicants must include the name and contact information (specifically email address) for each reference. This will trigger an e-mail message requesting completion of a reference form. The form will be completed online. Students submitting more than one application will need to use the same individuals as references for each application.

Interviews will be conducted for qualified applicants 

Applicants must also register online for computer matching per published guidelines of DICAS, D&D Digital and the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. There is a $50 computer matching fee.

The UK Hospital Internship application fee is $40. This is separate from the DICAS fee mentioned above. A check made payable to UK Nutrition Department for $40 should be sent to:

Computer matching

All applicants to Dietetic Internships (DI) and most Pre-professional Practice Programs must participate in computer matching. Applicants should request instructions and a mark/sense card to prioritize their DI preferences. Applicants should request this material from any Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics-approved Didactic Program in Dietetics or from D&D Digital Systems. This request should be made to allow turn around time for submitting by a February 2014, postmark deadline. Contact D&D Digital Systems at:
