Thank you for your interest in BWS DI’s DI-Only Pathway. This pathway is an option for applicants in the following situations:

  • Applicant already has a master’s degree.
  • Applicant is currently pursuing a master’s degree.
  • Applicant plans to apply to a program that is not a BWS DI MS program partner.

Applicants who choose to apply to the DI-Only Pathway must provide proof of an existing master’s degree, one that is in progress, or acceptance into a master’s program before starting the internship. Examples of proof include a letter of acceptance from a master’s program and/or transcripts from a currently enrolled master’s program. More information about our DI application process can be found here.

Per the CDR 2024 Graduate Degree Requirement, after January 1, 2024, dietetic interns must complete all requirements of the dietetic internship and successfully complete a graduate program to receive a DI verification statement and to be eligible to take the registration examination for dietitians. We are not able to accept interns who do not already have and are not planning to obtain a master’s degree.

Information about our MS/DI Pathway can be found here. This pathway is for individuals who plan to apply to one or more of our MS program partners.


Our program faculty are happy to answer any questions that you have and provide support throughout the application process. Please send any questions to or schedule an appointment with a faculty advisor via Calendly.
