Second Round Match Procedures for 2017 

  • Applications will only be accepted through DICAS.  Interested applicants can add the South Dakota State University Nutrition & Dietetics Internship (SDSU NDI) to their “Program Designations” in DICAS.
  • SDSU Graduate School Applications are NOT required at this time.  Graduate School Applications are required only AFTER an intern has been selected.
  • If your GRE score is not listed on your DICAS application or you don’t have a GRE score, you are not required to have a GRE score for the 2nd Round Selection Process at the time of application.  Due to the very short timeline for application acceptance for the 2nd Round, we understand that obtaining a GRE score may not be feasible.  If selected into the NDI program, a GRE score may be requested at a later date if deemed necessary.
  • The DUE DATE for DICAS application program designations to the SDSU NDI is by noon (CST) on Saturday, April 8th.  Note:  DICAS application acceptance status for the second round won’t be open for our program until noon on Thursday, April 6th.
  • Applicants will be notified of the decision via email prior to 5 pm on Thursday, April 13th.
  • If accepted into the SDSU NDI, applicants must respond to the notification email of their agreement to “accept” or “decline” the SDSU NDI offer by midnight (CST) on Thursday, April 13th.
  • An announcement posting the program as “closed” or “still open” will be posted on the NDI website by noon (CST) on Friday, April 14th.
  • Additional instructions and deadlines if the program is “still open” after April 14th will also be posted.
