Nutrition and Dietetics Program

The Nutrition and Dietetics Associate in Science degree program is a science-oriented transfer program that provides the foundation needed to pursue a career in the field of dietetics and nutritional care. MVCC has transfer articulation agreements with Rochester Institute of Technology, Syracuse University, SUNY Plattsburgh, SUNY Buffalo, and SUNY Oneonta. Other transfer opportunities exist upon the successful completion of the MVCC degree. Some transfer agreements at four-year institutions may require Biological Chemistry, Organic Chemistry or Biochemistry, which could mean that General Chemistry 1 and 2 would be taken during the first year.

  • Graduates transfer to a baccalaureate institution with full junior status in a science/nutrition related program.
  • Graduates will meet the SUNY requirements in general education by completing at least 7 of the 10 SUNY GE silos.
