South Dakota State University Financial Aid

*The internship fee covers the costs associated with practice exams for the registration exam for dietitians, a portion of the program director salary, supplemental intern training materials, professional development for preceptors, ACEND annual accreditation fees, professional development related expenses for program director and interns and printing, telephone, supplies etc. related to the internship program.

*The internship program fee base is $9,000/yr, subject to a 0-2% increase per year dependent on institutional policy. Half ($4,530) of the internship program fee is due at the start of the first fall semester the intern is enrolled in graduate classes towards completion of the internship. For example, if an intern is accepted into the internship during either the Spring Pre-select or Spring Computer Match Process; their first internship program payment will be due the following Fall of that same year regardless of whether they plan to complete the entire program in 1,2 or 3 years. The remaining half ($4,530) will be due at the start of the subsequent Spring semester. The due dates for the internship program fees will be the same as the due dates established by the university for tuition and fees for each semester.

**Includes liability insurance, students will be registered for practicum and internship credits during their supervised practice rotations and a $15 fee for liability insurance will be charged through tuition and fees.
